Blackburn caretaker Steve Kean wants to snap up Blackpool’s Charlie Adam to kickstart the Ewood Park revolution.
Kean hopes to be in charge next month when new owners Venky’s plan to invest in three or four fresh faces.
Scotland international schemer Adam was on Sam Allardyce’s wish list – but Rovers insiders have said that fellow Scot Kean was the driving force behind the interest.
Adam, 25, has been told he cannot have a free transfer from Ian Holloway’s club, despite a bid to have his contract cancelled after he won a dispute with the Seasiders about an unpaid bonus. Kean will lobby for Blackburn’s Indian money men to find the cash for the former Rangers player.
Stoke are also interested in Adam, but Kean could win the race and is still expected to get a run in the job despite a low-key start in the 1-1 draw with West Ham.
Rovers will also seek defensive cover after 18-year-old Phil Jones suffered a serious knee injury on Saturday.
