Monaco midfielder Gary Coulibaly says he would be keen on a move to England, with Blackburn Rovers reported to be a potential destination following a breakdown in negotiations with Sheffield Wednesday.

Gary Coulibaly: Monaco midfielder linked with Blackburn

The 27-year old had recently been on trial with the Owls but an agreement between the two clubs could not be reached and the Frenchman is now believed to be looking elsewhere.

Coulibaly is likely to find himself surplus to requirements with the Ligue 1 side following their influx of signings this summer, and he admitted that a move to England could be tempting.

"I have a contract until 2016, however with Joao Moutinho, Jeremy Toulalan and Delvin Ndinga in the same position it will be hard to play week-in-week-out," he said.

"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."

couple of wins and everything is OK! Sorry you still haven't got a striker who can consistently goals. Keep searching. I don't think Liverpool will make top four not even Europa League this time around.

f he can find the right player? Surely the manager of one of Europe's top clubs has a well-researched short-list and has a good idea of who he wants to bring on-board? If I can find the right player sounds like someone going out on Saturday night on the pull, and the nearer you get to midnight the lower your standards drop.
