Blackburn are interested in signing Antonsson from Leeds in the summer transfer window, according to The Lancashire Telegraph.
Antonsson moved to Championship outfit Leeds from Swedish club 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 striker arrived at the West Yorkshire outfit with a good reputation, but he was able to make only six starts in the Championship during the 2016-17 campaign, scoring just one goal in the process.
Leeds and Blackburn fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to speculation linking Antonsson with a transfer between the two clubs.

Antonsson would do well in League 1.— James (@JamesLUFC) August 8, 2017
If we're letting Antonsson go out on loan it has to be to a team that will guarantee first team football! The boy needs a chance! #lufc— Tom O'Hare (@tohare3) August 8, 2017
I'd loan Antonsson, not sell him. Have a feeling he could come good. Loan til January. #lufc— kestrel (@BremnersLaces) August 7, 2017
