Liverpool have joined the list of clubs interested in Christopher Samba and look to have jumped to the head of the queue.
The defensive colossus has long sought a switch from Ewood Park and has even changed agents after failing to secure a move in the previous transfer window.
Arsenal and Tottenham showed some muted interest in the Congo international last summer but neither made any solid bids.
Arsene Wenger has since signed German man-mountain Per Mertesacker and so his enthusiasm has waned.
Now Kenny Dalglish could be set to make a January move for Samba, despite signin Uruguayan defender Sebastian Coates, possibly because this maybe Jamie Carragher’s last season as a first team regular.
Spurs are likely challengers for the 27-year-old’s signature, who is eager to move to a bigger club while still in the prime of his career.
Blackburn are under no pressure to sell their prize asset and will want to keep Samba as their continued Premier League survival may depend on his defensive performances.
