Blackburn Rovers have put a price tag of £12 million on their striker Jordan Rhodes. The long list of clubs interested in signing Rhodes now reads: Middlesbrough, Crystal Palace, Swansea, Everton and supposedly West Ham.
Rovers bought Rhodes from Huddersfield for a club record £8 million back in 2012, Huddersfield inserted a 20% sell on fee clause.
The Hammers have been linked with the 25 year striker for more than 3 years with claims we once previously bid £3m to Huddersfield before he was sold to Blackburn, we were linked again the Summer of 2013 and last year.
Sam Allardyce was a long term admirer of Rhodes and it is claimed he tried to bring him to Boleyn Ground on a number of occasions. It remains to be seen whether Tony Henry and the board togetehr with any incoming manager see it the same way or whether this is just recycling of transfer news during the silly season.
