Rovers have been credited with interest in former Huddersfield Town winger Rajiv van La after his departure from Red Star Belgrade.

The Dutchman is best known for his three years with the Terriers having first made his move to England when signed by Wolves in 2014.

Now 28-year-old, van La Parra has also spent loan spells at Brighton and Middlesbrough, has also been linked with Norwich, Millwall, Swansea and QPR.

Reports in the national press outline van La Parra would be open to a return to England, after less than a season in Serbian football after a £1.2m deal last summer.

The Serbian season is set to resume on May 30, but van La Parra was released by Red Star in March, despite making five Champions League appearances, and four more in the league.

Rovers were in the market for a winger in January, Tony Mowbray having outlined that following the injury to Bradley Dack, and to allow Adam Armstrong to play in a more central role.

They were linked with a move for Lech Poznan winger Kami Jozwiak, only to see their advances knocked back, while enquiries for Portsmouth’s Ronan Curtis were also rebuffed.

One of Rovers options out wide, Stewart Downing, is out of contract this summer, with no option in the one-year deal that brought him to Ewood Park from Middlesbrough.

However, Rovers are hopeful of agreeing an extended stay for the 35-year-old who has impressed throughout the 2019/20 campaign.
