The Premier League strugglers have identified the 30-year-old striker as the ideal foil to Yakubu, and believe the former Crystal Palace man can help propel them away from the relegation zone.
Rovers are currently rooted to the bottom of the table, and could offer Johnson the contract that’s not been forthcoming at Craven Cottage in the hope that he can fire them to safety.
But with QPR also in the hunt, it may come down to who’s ready to match Fulham’s £2million valuation of the goalscorer, who is out of contract at the end of the season.
Johnson struggled with injuries since making his £10.5million move to west London from Everton back in 2008, but a run in the side under new boss Martin Jol has seen him net 11 goals in all competitions this season.
I think this would be a good move for Blackburn, he would do well playing with Yakubu me thinks. And if AJ is going somewhere else, I'd rather it be Blackburn than QPR.
