Rovers are close to finalising a move for goalkeeper Thomas Kaminski – but are unlikely to make a move for a striker this summer.

Kaminski is set to become the club’s first summer signing and solve the issues in goal for Rovers who are currently without a senior goalkeeper on their books.

The 27-year-old was left out of the AA Gent squad for their Jupiler League fixture with Antwerp tonight after agreeing a six-figure fee with Rovers for the Belgian stopper.

A medical is expected to take place next week, with Kaminski set to travel to England, with Gent having already started their search for a replacement.

Rovers are expected to bring in two new goalkeepers this summer, with a back-up option to Kamisnki, who will sign a three-year deal, to come in the form of a free agent signing or loan deal.

Having two deals for overseas goalkeepers fall through last year, in their bid to replace David Raya, Rovers won’t rest until the deal is signed, but things are understood to be progressing as planned.

However, Rovers’ summer business is set to focus on the goalkeeping and defensive positions, with a move for a striker unlikely.

That’s despite the departures of Danny Graham and Dominic Samuel who left last month at the end of their contracts.

Tony Mowbray will hope that an attacking quartet of last season’s top scorer Adam Armstrong, who hit two in the win over Fleetwood Town, soon to be fit again Bradley Dack and big-money buys Sam Gallagher and Ben Brereton will be the required firepower for Rovers this season.

Dan Butterworth, working his way back to fitness from a back problem, and Jack Vale, who missed the Fleetwood win with an injury picked up in training, are among the back-up options in attack.

Reports in the national press have linked Rovers with a move for Karlsruhe's 17-goal frontman Philipp Hofmann, but those are understood to be wide of the mark.

Hoffman has experience of the Championship, after spending two years with Brentford following a switch from Kaiserslautern for a seven-figure fee.

Since leaving the Bees in 2017 he has spent time in his native Germany with Greuther Furth and Braunschweig and has a year left to run on his current contract.

But as things stand, Rovers aren’t in the market for a striker and will put their faith in their current options.
