Blackpool plotting swoop for Blackburn Rovers striker

Blackpool are keen on signing Blackburn Rovers striker Joe Nuttall.

The Tangerines are looking to bring in a forward before the start of the season next week and could turn to the 22-year-old, according to a report by Football Insider.

Nuttall could leave Ewood Park in this transfer window in search of more first team opportunities elsewhere.

The new Blackpool boss Simon Grayson is eager to sharpen his attack before his side face Bristol Rovers on the opening day of their League One campaign.

The Seasiders have been active in the transfer window having already brought in the likes of Jak Alnwick, Jamie Devitt, Ryan Edwards, James Husband, Sulley Kaikai and Adi Yussuff.

Nuttall, who is from Bury, is not a first team regular for Rovers but was part of Tony Mowbray’s side that won promotion from the third tier in 2018.

He started his career at Manchester City and rose up through the youth ranks at the Etihad Stadium. He never made a senior appearance for the Premier League giants and left in 2015 to join Scottish Premiership outfit Aberdeen.

Nuttall played four times for the Dons and had loan spells at Stranraer and Dumbarton before he was released in 2017.

He went on trial to Blackburn and they decided to offer him a contract two years. He could now be on the move again with Blackpool eyeing a move.
