The Paris St Germain winger, who operates primarily on the left, is surplus to requirements at the Parc des Princes following disciplinary issues and is thought to be keen on a move to England.

Allardyce is no stranger to gambling on players with questionable reputations and looks set to make Rothen his ninth signing of a busy summer at Ewood Park.

The former France international has played his entire career in his homeland but has not ruled out a move to England at the age of 31.

“If it is not in Paris it can be somewhere else.”
