Metz are awaiting news from Blackburn after striker Babacar Gueye joined Rovers for a trial, according to the French club's sporting director Joel Muller.
Muller claimed the 22-year-old Senegal striker, who has scored only one goal in the French second division this season, has been given a chance to impress Sam Allardyce with a view to a possible move.
"I can tell you that Blackburn are interested in Gueye," he told setanta.com. "For the moment, the player is spending a couple of days at the club and we are waiting for an offer in midweek."
