Hamburg are chasing Blackburn Rovers' Canadian youngster Junior Hoilett.

The Lancashire Telegraph says the 19-year-old Canadian is attracting considerable interest from abroad, especially in Germany where he has starred on loan over the past couple of seasons, with Rovers and Hoilett’s representatives still locked in talks.

Should they fail to come to agreement come the re-opening of the transfer window in January, Rovers may be tempted into cashing in on the striker if the right offer comes in – with his deal out this summer.
