Olympique Marseille striker Andre-Pierre Gignac is on Blackburn Rovers' radar.

The Mirror says the 26-year-old former France international could leave the French side on loan in the summer, after finding himself ­relegated to the reserves.

Rovers boss Steve Kean’s assistant Eric Black is a big fan of Gignac, who may need a move to kick-start his career.

Fulham and Sunderland showed interest in him earlier this season but failed to lure him over.
