He is said to believe that the striker's European experience is going to be a key to Rovers success.
The competition for places upfront could be seen as a problem to Jansen - he, however, has different ideas. The challenge could, as he says, be a big help to Rovers performance next season.
The £5 million price tag over the United's players head is apparently a problem for Souness, who is refusing to match the offer. Yorke will be out of contract at Rovers in 12 months...
Jansen believes that the Trinidad & Tobago marksman would make a superb addition to the current squad at Blackburn ahead of next season's UEFA Cup campaign.
Matt said: "It would be great if the gaffer could get Dwight Yorke to the club in the summer.
"Dwight has proved himself to be a top goalscorer in Europe with Manchester United, so I would love him to come here, even though it would mean a real fight for places."
