Blackburn have identified Fulham striker Andy Johnson as the man to score the goals which keep them in the Premier League.

Rovers are willing to pay 2million to lure the form Crystal Palace man away from London, while also offering him 50,000-a-week and a survival bonus.

Johnson is unhappy at Fulham having seen his three-and-a-half year career at Craven Cottage blighted by injuries and loss of form.

And despite making more of an impact this term – he has scored three times in 14 Premier League appearances – the one-time England frontman sees a future elsewhere.

QPR have also registered an interest in Johnson, knowing he is happy with London life, but the financial rewards on offer at Ewood Park could convince the 31-year-old to up sticks, according to the Daily Mirror.

However, Rovers are prepared to push the boat out for Johnson in terms of salary in a bid to tempt him north.

Nottingham Forest right-back Chris Gunter is also on Blackburn”s radar.
