Luton Town and Brentford keen on swoop for Blackburn Rovers ace

Blackburn Rovers ace Sammie Szmodics is wanted by Luton Town and Brentford, reports Alan Nixon.

Blackburn Rovers are expected to face a battle to keep hold of the attacker in the summer.

Szmodics, 28, has been a key player for the Championship side since joining them back in 2022.

In this latest update regarding his future by reporter Nixon on his Patreon page, the Hatters and the Bees are both keen on luring him to the Premier League in the next transfer window.

Blackburn Rovers man eyed

It seems inevitable that Blackburn will lose Szmodics at the end of this season, despite him being under contract at Ewood Park until June 2026.

He has been prolific for the Lancashire outfit since his move there and has scored 33 goals in 79 appearances in all competitions, 26 of which have come in this campaign.

Luton and Brentford could both hand him the chance of playing in the top flight. However, both are currently fighting for survival and would need to stay up to boost their chances of landing him.

Szmodics is a product of the Colchester United academy and rose into their first-team as a youngster before Bristol City snapped him up.

His time at Ashton Gate didn’t work out though and he left for Peterborough United in 2020.

The Essex-born man went on to score 27 goals in 96 matches for the Posh and has since carried on his form at Blackburn.

Rovers are in a relegation battle and his focus right now will be on helping them to avoid slipping into the third tier. John Eustace’s side are sat in 18th place in the table.

They are three points above the drop zone with nine games left to play after their 1-1 draw at home to Plymouth Argyle this weekend. Next up is an away trip to Middlesbrough.
