The 27-year old DR Congo international has long been linked with a move to the Emirates and now it seems a deal is could be back on the cards after he stated that he would 'seize' the chance to depart Ewood Park.
"I know there are discussions with some clubs," Samba told L'Equipe.
"If a good opportunity arises, I want to seize it. It is necessary that the club understands that I want to go one step further.
"I hope they will not put a stick in the wheels.
"It's been four and a half years I have been at Blackburn and two years I have played in relegation battles."
