German outlet Kicker (via insidefutbol) claim that Freiburg will listen to offers for Okoroji this summer – he’s first set to return to the club following his loan spell, and decision will be made as and when transfer offers come in.

He’s said to have suitors in Germany, Fortuna Dusseldorf being one of them, along with Blackburn and Stoke who were both linked last week by a report from Transfermarkt.

No price tag is known as of yet, but with only a year left of his Freiburg contract, Okoroji could well be sold at a cut price this summer.


Blackburn will need defensive additions going into the summer. Tony Mowbray had to plug the gaps with loan signings last season and so defensively, he’ll need to bolster.

Bringing in Okoroji would be an obvious gamble given that he’s still very little experience to date and none within the English game either.

But these risks can often pay off – should the money be right then expect any potential deal to go through pretty quickly, but Rovers would have to move likewise to fend off Stoke City and German interest.
