Dynamo Kiev defender Pape Diakhate is attracting interest from Blackburn Rovers.

The Daily Mail says the 25-year-old Senegal centre back is set to leave Ukraine this summer with Atalanta, Siena and Lecce all keen to take the player to Italy.

Blackburn manager Sam Allardyce has around £10m to spend after selling Roque Santa Cruz for £18m to Manchester City and Matt Derbyshire to Olympiakos for £3m.
