Blackburn Rovers are reportedly keeping tabs on Leeds United striker Marcus Antonsson.

Blackburn Rovers are reportedly keeping an eye on Leeds United striker Marcus Antonsson ahead of a potential move.

The 26-year-old was left out of the Whites' squad for their 3-2 win over Bolton Wanderers on Sunday, suggesting that he could be on his way out of Elland Road.

According to the Lancashire Telegraph, Antonsson is one of a handful of players being considered by Blackburn as manager Tony Mowbray is keen to bolster his attacking options.

Reports in Sweden have claimed that AIK had opened talks over a permanent deal for the forward, but an agreement could not be reached.

IFK Norrkoping, Hammarby and Kalmar FF have also been linked to Antonsson.
