Brentford weighing up approach for Blackburn Rovers midfielder Joe Rothwell

Brentford are lining up a move for Blackburn Rovers midfielder Joe Rothwell, Football Insider reports.

The Bees have bolstered their squad this summer with defender Kristoffer Ajer and midfielder Frank Onyeka, but they are eyeing more reinforcements.

It is now reported that the club have their sights on landing Rothwell, who could be available on a cut-price deal with his contract expiring next summer.

Rothwell, who was recently the man of the match against Swansea City, could be the second high-profile star leaving Rovers this month after Adam Armstrong.
