Two in, and most likely around four more to come, for Rovers in their bid to add to their squad this summer.

New regulations brought in for this season mean it is now under a month until the summer transfer window closes. Clubs will have until Thursday, August 9 to make permanent transfers, though EFL sides will have until the end of the month to make loan signings.

So far Rovers have made two summer additions, Joe Rothwell and Jacob Davenport arriving from Oxford United and Manchester City for undisclosed fees and on three and four year deals respectively.

Tony Mowbray is targeting around six deals in all, with two Premier League loanees and two permanent signings the most likely make up of the remaining business.

The additions of Rothwell and Davenport mean Rovers are well stocked in the midfield area, and their versatility to play in a number of different roles will be of great benefit to Rovers throughout the course of the season.

Attention will now be on the forward positions. 

Though Danny Graham and Craig Conway signed new deals, Rovers are still yet to replace the departures of loan quartet Harry Chapman, Marcus Antonsson, Adam Armstrong and Jack Payne, or their combined 19 goals.

Chapman returning on a permanent deal would be a popular move among the fanbase. The player too is thought to be keen on a return, though Mowbray has remained coy on the subject, with the winger currently in pre-season training with Middlesbrough.

His age, talent, and having a year left to run on his contract, means he fits the profile of signing Rovers would want to make, though Mowbray would need to weigh up the finance needed to secure the move against the role Chapman would play, with an impact substitute again the most likely.

Ryan Kent, of Liverpool, has been mentioned as a possible alternative, an obvious link to make having impressed when featuring under Mowbray while at Coventry City in 2015/16. That isn't one which is progressing at this stage, with Liverpool also likely to demand significant fees should he not be a regular starter.

Peterborough United’s Gwion Edwards has been rumoured, but it is thought there has been no interest from Rovers to date.

At least two attackers are wanted. However, with Mowbray having used strikers in wide areas last season, this might not be a case of two genuine out-and-out number nines arriving.

That made the link to Leeds United’s Kemar Roofe an interesting option, with the former Oxford United man having scored 14 times last season and able to play across the frontline. However, Leeds don’t seem keen to part with the 25-year-old.

The finances surrounding a move for ex-loanee Armstrong from Newcastle United would also require plenty of negotiation should that be an avenue Rovers chose to go down. 

But Mowbray is well aware of his need to strengthen in attack. 

The chase for Charlton Athletic defender Patrick Bauer went cold when the Addicks placed a £2million valuation on the German who is in to the final 12 months of his current deal. Mowbray has mentioned valuations for players at this time of year being high, and as time ticks on, a deal could still be done.

Either way, Rovers do have flexible options in defence, with Ryan Nyambe and Derrick Williams able to operate in both the central and full-back areas, but Mowbray is keen on adding more competition to his defensive ranks. 

Mowbray has also previously spoken about his wish to add more of a senior challenge to 22-year-old stopper David Raya, the League One goalkeeper of the season for 2017/18. Ex-Rover Frankie Fielding was a target, though that now appears unlikely until Bristol City source a new goalkeeper of their own having missed out on a move for Manchester United’s Dean Henderson who joined Sheffield United.
