Blackburn Rovers plans to move in January for Portsmouth winger Marcus Harness, a report from the Lancashire Telegraph found.
After seeing loaned Leeds winger Ian Poveda stretch in their 1-1 draw at Bristol City on Saturday afternoon, the Rovers may now have to tap into the transfer market for wide reinforcements.
Now, it looks like it might get them to turn their attention to Fratton Park at the turn of the year.
According to this latest update, Blackburn looked at a potential move for Harness, who has scored in each of his last three games for Pompey.
As it stands, Harness is in the final year of his contract at Fratton Park, although Portsmouth have the option to extend this agreement for an additional 12 months, securing his future on the south coast until the end of next season.
In total, Harness has scored 28 goals and provided 16 assists in 108 appearances in all competitions for Portsmouth, since joining from League One rivals Burton in the summer of 2019.
Has Blackburn ever won an away game in these 20 stadiums?
It could be a very good signing for Blackburn if they are able to pull it off.
This injury to Poveda means they could be running out of attacking options going forward, which they will have to sort out if they are to maintain their momentum for the playoffs all season long.
Considering his track record over the past few years for Portsmouth, it looks like Harness may be a pretty decent option to fill that role on Mowbray’s side.
Given his contractual position at Fratton Park, Harness could also be relatively affordable for Blackburn, meaning it seems worth considering for those responsible for Ewood Park.
