Blackburn Rovers reportedly want to sign Marcus Antonsson from Leeds United in the summer transfer window.

Blackburn Rovers are interested in signing Marcus Antonsson from Leeds United in the summer transfer window, according to The Lancashire Telegraph.

It has been reported that Antonsson is on the radar of Blackburn, who will play in League One this season after getting relegated from the Championship at the end of the 2016-17 campaign.

According to the report, the 26-year-old striker is one of a number of players being looked at by Rovers manager Tony Mowbray.

Antonsson joined Championship club Leeds from Swedish side Kalmar FF in the summer of 2016 for a transfer fee reported by The Lancashire Telegraph to be in the region of £2 million.

The 26-year-old arrived at Elland Road with a strong reputation, but the striker failed to make a massive impact at the Whites last season.

The Swedish striker was able to make only six starts in the Championship during the 2016-17 campaign, scoring just one goal in the process.

Joining Rovers on a season-long loan deal this summer would be a good move for Leeds striker Antonsson.
