Paul Ince has revealed that he is set to sign Robbie Fowler on a contract for the new season.

The 33 year old Anfield legend has been on trial this Summer at Rovers after leaving Cardiff City to join the Ewood Park club on their preseason tours.

Ince told BBC Radio Lancashire: “We’re close to doing something with Robbie.

“I’ve always said he needs to get his fitness and sharpness and now we are seeing signs of that.”

Ince added: “He’s been different class in training especially in the last three of four days. I will sit down with the chairman now and see where we go from there.”

Fowler has started one of six preseason friendlies this Summer and come off the bench in four others, but is yet to score for his new side.

Ince is keen to get his ex-Liverpool team-mate signed up before the opening fixture against former club rivals Everton.

“It’s a shame really because he always seems to score against Everton.

“He’s a world-class striker. If he can get himself fit he’ll always score goals at any level.”
