BLACKBURN Rovers have enquired about the possibility of bringing Gillingham attacker Bradley Dack to Ewood Park.

The Lancashire Telegraph understands that Dack, who was named League One player of the year in 2015/16, has emerged as one of Tony Mowbray’s top targets.

The 23-year-old still has a year left to run on his current Gillingham deal, so would command a fee, but that is expected to be significantly lower than the £2million the Gills rejected from Bristol City in January 2016.

Rovers have brought in two central midfielders so far this summer, in Richie Smallwood and Peter Whittingham, but are looking to strengthen in the attacking areas of the pitch, with a number 10 thought to be high on their priority list.

Dack has scored 31 times in the last three seasons, with the Gills avoiding relegation from League One on the final day of last season having just missed out on the play-offs in 2015/16.

Much of that promotion push was down to the form of Dack who netted 15 times, including one against Mowbray’s Coventry City in a 4-1 defeat in November 2015.

Dack also laid on 11 assists during his stellar year in 2015/16, which also saw him linked with a move to Premier League outfit Crystal Palace, while his six goals in the last campaign was enough for him to walk away as the Gills’ young player of the year.

There is understood to be Championship sides still monitoring his situation, with the player thought to be keen on a move away from the Priestfield after 185 appearances in a Gills shirt.

And Rovers have made contact with the Gills about the possibility of bringing the former Charlton Athletic apprentice to East Lancashire this summer as Mowbray shapes his squad ahead of the new season which kicks off on August 5.

Rovers have just two strikers, Danny Graham and Anthony Stokes, on their books following the departure of loan trio Sam Gallagher, Marvin Emnes and Lucas Joao at the end of last season.

And Mowbray believes Rovers will need to score upwards of 80 goals if they are to achieve their aim of promotion.

Rovers will be looking to bring in a frontman, though goals from midfield are also likely to be key.

Whittingham scored seven times for Cardiff City in the Championship last season, with one of Dack’s strengths his ability to find the net when arriving late in the box from the middle of the pitch.
