Sunderland and Blackburn Rovers are competing to bring highly-rated midfielder Adam Boujamaa to England later in 2019, according to France Football.

A 20-year-old France-Moroccan starlet, Boujamaa is currently plying his trade for the Guingamp reserve team. But his future is up in the air over The Channel with the Coupe de la Ligue finalists failing to tie him down to a professional contract.


France Football reports that there are a number of clubs in the Football League hoping to snap up Boujamaa on the cheap. Sunderland and Blackburn have reportedly already made offers and will be praying for a positive response.

Since Jack Ross took over at the Stadium of Light, a number of promising youngsters have been given their chance in the first team from Benji Kimpioka to Denver Hume. Josh Maja, meanwhile, got his big break with Bordeaux after a prolific first half of the season in League One.

Blackburn, meanwhile, are also reported to be interested, perhaps in the expectation that Boujamaa can make a Bradley Dack-style transformation from relative obscurity into one of the top talents in the Championship.
