Blackburn try again for Hoffenheim striker Vedad Ibisevic

Blackburn Rovers are reviving their interest in Hoffenheim striker Vedad Ibisevic.

The Mirror says Rovers boss Steve Kean missed out on landing the ­Hoffenheim front man in the summer because he was not fully fit – and a proper medical could not be arranged to assess his recovery.

But now Rovers are poised to go in again for the forward who is available at around £3.5million, with Kean believing a striker will fire his club out of trouble in the second half of the campaign.

Kean has been given backing to target players for the new year and Ibisevic would be a perfect addition, with his goal-scoring return to the Hoffenheim squad proving his fitness.
