Benjani Mwaruwari has done enough in trials to win a Blackburn Rovers deal.
The Sun says Sam Allardyce is ready to offer a short-term deal to former Manchester City striker Benjani.
The Zimbabwean free agent has been training with Big Sam's Blackburn for a fortnight as he tries to find a club.
Boss Allardyce had his doubts at first as Benjani, 32, suffers with a long-standing knee problem.
But a lack of funds at Ewood Park and a shortage of strikers means the Rovers gaffer will take a gamble before the transfer window closes.
