BLACKBURN are getting creative in their bid to sign Matt O’Riley from MK Dons.
The talented midfielder, 21, is being chased by a number of clubs at home and abroad.
Rovers are very keen but are struggling to afford the £1.7million so are looking at other ways of financing the deal.
That could involve either including a player in the deal.
Or coming to an arrangement on the sell-on fee they are due from MK selling goalkeeper Andrew Fisher to Swansea – who are also extremely interested in O’Riley.
Ex-Fulham kid O’Riley has caught the eye this season with seven goals this term, including the winner in Tuesday night’s 1-0 win over AFC Wimbledon.
Belgium pair Anderlecht and OHL are the latest foreign sides to show an interest, joining the likes of Bordeaux, Venezia and PSV.
SunSport revealed earlier this month that O’Riley is also being closely watched by the Danish FA.

He qualifies for Denmark and Norway on his mother’s side, and speaks Danish, as well as England.
Meanwhile, Leeds and Brighton are fighting over Blackburn goal machine Ben Brereton.
SunSport exclusively revealed last month that Marcelo Bielsa is keen on signing the Chile international.
But he has now been joined by Graham Potter, who wants to boost Brighton back up the table.
