Gary Coulibaly has insisted that he would be prepared to leave Monaco this summer in a bid to secure regular football next season.
The 27-year-old has a contract until 2016, but an influx of new midfielders at the French outfit this summer is expected to cut his first-team action.
"I had talks with Sheffield [Wednesday] but we could not agree a fee. I am thinking, to play in England could be fantastic.
"Blackburn is a big team and it can be a good club for me but nothing is done yet to be honest, let's see what comes out of it."
A number of Championship clubs are also believed to be monitoring proceedings.
