Blackburn want Todd Cantwell transfer this month as Norwich reject first offer for ex-England youth star
BLACKBURN are the mystery club who have had an offer for Todd Cantwell turned down by Norwich.
The Canaries are willing to listen to offers for Cantwell with the attacking midfielder out of contract at Carrow Road in the summer.
Blackburn have targeted a move for Cantwell as they look to bolster their attacking options in a bid to boost their Premier League promotion bid.
But their offer in the region of £1.5million has been rejected by Norwich.
Cantwell has made 18 appearances in the Championship this season, but he’s endured a tough campaign since returning from his loan with Bournemouth.
He’s yet to register a goal or an assist and his last outing came back in November as a substitute against Middlesbrough.
The former England Under-21 star did return to the bench for the recent defeat to Watford.
But the midfield man wasn’t involved in David Wagner’s first game in charge in the FA Cup last weekend.
And the new boss is willing to let Cantwell move on before the close of the transfer window to make room in his squad for potential new signings.
Scottish giants Rangers are also interested in signing Cantwell with Ibrox boss Michael Beale publicly admitting he is a big fan of the 24-year-old.

It’s a stark contrast to how things panned out when he was last at this level as he helped the Carrow Road club make an instant return to the top-flight.
And he was a regular starter two years ago, chipping in with six goals and seven assists as the Canaries romped to the title.
