Blackburn could face a battle to keep hold of Jason Lowe when the transfer window opens as West Bromwich Albion are reported to be lining up a bid.
The Baggies are struggling in the Premier League this season under the leadership of Tony Pulis and are 3.75 to be relegated.
Albion sit just above the drop zone, four points above Aston Villa, who occupy the final spot, and Pulis is keen to bolster his ranks as soon as the window opens.
Lowe may not be in the Rovers first team at this moment as he is injured, but he is still very highly-rated by boss Gary Bowyer, who will be keen to fight off all interest in him.
The 24-year-old is versatile and can also play as a defensive midfielder and at right-back, which makes him even more appealing to the Baggies.
Lowe has made 137 appearances for the club since emerging from the youth ranks, while he has also represented the England Under-21s on 11 occasions.
There have been suggestions that a £5million deal could tempt Rovers to sell as it would be enough cash to lift the transfer embargo that they are currently operating under.
Lowe is not the only player at Ewood Park who is in demand as reports continue to link star striker Jordan Rhodes with a move away from the club.
Blackburn are 21.00 to win promotion from the Championship this season but their hopes of doing so would be severely dented should Lowe move on to pastures new.
