Blackburn Rovers are moving for Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor.

The Mirror says Rovers boss Steve Kean's top priority is signing a big-name striker and Adebayor tops the list, along with Roma's Mirko Vucinic and Amauri of Juventus.

Manchester City are desperate to offload Adebayor, just two years after splashing out £25million to sign him from Arsenal.

Real Madrid failed to exercise the option to make his loan spell permanent before Monday's deadline.

City may now accept as little as £10m for Adebayor, with manager Roberto Mancini adamant he does not want the player back at their Carrington base for pre-season training.
