Derby County striker Cameron Jerome is reportedly being eyed up by Leeds United, Blackburn Rovers and Bolton Wanderers, according to Football Insider.
Cameron Jerome has fallen down the pecking order at Pride Park after the arrival of Martyn Waghorn and Jack Marriott in the summer transfer window. Pete O’Rourke writes that the veteran striker could be made available on loan, and Leeds United, Blackburn Rovers and Blackburn Rovers are interested in the striker.
However, they are not the only sides looking at bringing in Jerome. Turkish sides Trabzonspor, Ankaragucu and Goztepe are also looking at bringing in the 32-year-old.
Blackburn Rovers have been keen to bring in striker reinforcements throughout the summer, having already brought in Adam Armstrong from Newcastle United. Rovers have also been keen to bring in Nottingham Forest striker Ben Brereton, and have had three bids knocked back for the youngster.
Bolton Wanderers are keen to bring in a new striker, after losing Adam Le Fondre to Australian side Sydney FC. The 31-year-old scored 7 league goals last season, and scored once and assisted twice in Wanderers’ 3-2 win on the last day of last season against Nottingham Forest, keeping them in the league.
Leeds fans would’ve been hoping that they would be signing Matej Vydra from Derby this summer, but after Vydra supposedly rejected United because of their league position last season, the move broke down and the Czech moved to Premier League side Burnley instead.
The trio chasing Jerome have until the end of August to negotiate a loan deal, with the window for loan deals remaining open. Blackburn Rovers manager Tony Mowbray hinted that they were slowly closing in on a new signing, but obviously didn’t give away any big hints.
