Sydney FC to make ambitious move for Blackburn's Emerton
A-League club Sydney FC are believed to be keen to make a play for Blackburn Rovers midfielder Brett Emerton. The Sky Blues are determined to bring some star quality to the Sydney Football Stadium and reports suggest that the 32-year old Australian international is the man they want.
Emerton had appeared in 28 Premier League matches this season, indicating that he is a key player at Ewood Park and it is unlikely that he would want to return home just yet.
On the weekend they meet league leaders Manchester United, who only need a point to clinch the Premiership, but the Lancashire outfit will be desperate to get at least a point of their own to stave off a possible relegation.
If Blackburn happen to fall to England's second division, then expect Sydney to go hard at Bankstown-born Emerton as they strive to bring some quality back to the club after a very lean season.
