Wantaway star Christopher Samba will be one of the most sought-after Premier League stars during today’s transfer window deadline day.
The Blackburn Rovers captain has been seeking a transfer request all month and has not played for Rovers since pulling a sickie before their 3-1 victory over Fulham on January 14.
The Congolese centre back has insisted he wants to play for a club with more ambition. Tottenham Hotspur, Queens Park Rangers and Paris Saint-Germain have all been heavily linked with the 6’4″ giant this month.
Blackburn Rovers have been demanding more money for their star player with QPR’s recent estimated bid of £6.5 million being rejected.
Chris Samba is one of the highest-rated centre backs in the Premier League currently, and here are some of his stats for the past three and a half seasons in a Rovers shirt:
|Goals Conceded per Game||1.57||1.17||1.33||1.94|
|Ground 50-50’s Win %||61%||66%||64%||65%|
|Minutes per Ground 50-50||7.4||7.59||9.4||12.98|

|Minutes per Aerial 50-50||16.05||14.76||16.22||24.11|

|Open Play Pass Completion %||69%||63%||64%||77%|

Queens Park Rangers are 2/5 favourites with Sky Bet to purchase Samba today. Tottenham come in at 5/1 second favourites, whilst the rest of the field are long shots. Arsenal and Sunderland 20/1, whilst PSG are out as far as 33/1.
