Northampton keeper David Cornell is a target for Blackburn Rovers and a number of other clubs, according to Football Insider.

The 28-year-old has been impressive between the sticks for the League Two side this season and it is believed he has caught the eye of Championship and League One clubs.

With Cornell’s contract expiring in the summer, Rovers, along with Championship rivals Derby County and League One side Ipswich Town will reportedly be attempting to sign the keeper for a knockdown price.

All three sides are looking to bolster their goalkeeping department before the transfer window shuts, with Ipswich having sold Bartosz Bialkowski to Millwall.

Blackburn boss Tony Mowbray has made it clear that he wants to sign a permanent keeper, with first choice Christian Walton only with Rovers on a season-long loan.

Blackburn were believed to be interested an making a move for Sheffield Wednesday shot-stopper Cameron Dawson earlier on in the window along with a number of other clubs.

However, Dawson recently put pen to paper on a contract extension, keeping him at Hillsbrough for another three years.

If Rovers want to make an addition to their goalkeeping ranks, they may be forced to go with the cheaper option of League Two keeper Cornell, unless Tony Mowbray is willing to wait until the summer to bring a keeper in.
