Dutch side FC Twente have shown an interest but Mac would love another crack at the Premier League to prove his doubters wrong.
A source close to McClaren told The Sun: "Steve wants to get back into work and sees Blackburn as a great opportunity.
"Holland remains an option but he has a burning desire to work in this country and show what he's all about.
"He is still hurting from England. Anyone who thinks he doesn't care is very wrong."
