Blackburn Rovers tracking 11-goal League One forward

Blackburn Rovers are tracking in form Portsmouth winger Ronan Curtis as reported by the Lancashire Telegraph.

The twenty-three-year-old has been in great form this season, scoring eleven goals in twenty-nine outings for Pompey.

The report claims Rovers boss Tony Mowbray is a big admirer of an attacker who can play on the left-wing or as a striker.

Curtis signed for Pompey in the summer of 2018 from the Irish League, and his form this season backs up an impressive first campaign in the EFL during which he scored twelve times as Portsmouth missed out on League One promotion in the playoffs.

Pompey endured a slow start to the current campaign, but Curtis has been a key factor in a recent resurgence in form which sees them in seventh pace just outside the playoff positions. It is understood they would resist any attempts to lure Curtis away from Fratton Park while promotion is still a possibility.

Rovers had been linked with sought after Peterborough playmaker Marcus Maddison but the Lancashire Telegraph claim they have made no bid for a player who looks set for a move to Championship rivals Charlton Athletic.


Our View

Curtis says he’s happy at Portsmouth but does have ambitions to play higher.

Pompey fans have heard this before from their players, and while a January move would be a surprise, if they do not go up this season, a summer departure seems likely.

As for disappointed Blackburn fans unhappy the club hasn’t bid for Maddison, having seen him twice this season and also seen Curtis, our view would be Curtis is a much better piece of business.
