- Blackburn’s Brereton-Diaz looks set to have his pick of clubs this summer, with strong interest coming from LaLiga
- Blackburn have recently activated a one-year extension in the striker’s agreement. A summer move is vital to maximise value from the player
- The striker has enjoyed a meteoric rise in the last 12 months, scoring 22 goals, and represent Chile at the Copa America
The striker has enjoyed a productive 12 months with Championship side Blackburn Rovers scoring 22 goals in 37 appearances last season. His form also drew the attention of the Chilean national team who called up Brereton-Diaz for last year’s Copa America.
Following the Stoke-on-Trent natives exploits in Latin America, Brereton-Diaz is now on the radar of a number of clubs in the Premier League and La Liga with the striker entering the final year of his contract with Blackburn Rovers.
The 23-year-old’s contract was actually set to expire this month, but Blackburn naturally chose to activate the one-year extension clause in the striker’s agreement. Blackburn will be mindful that they’ll need to move the forward on this summer to maximise value from any potential transfer.
Blackburn Rovers are reported to be asking for a fee in the region of £13-15 million, and will be hoping for a bidding war between interested Premier League and La Liga sides to inflate the fee further.
