Everton: Toffees fighting for Ben Brereton Diaz

Everton: Toffees fighting for Ben Brereton Diaz -Everton News

Everton are reportedly now fighting a number of other clubs to sign Ben Brereton Diaz.

The Lowdown: Premier League bound?

After 22 goals and three assists in the Championship this season (Transfermarkt), the Chile international seems destined for a move to the Premier League.

Clubs from the top flight have taken gambles on second-tier strikers before, such as Adam Armstrong moving from the Rovers to Southampton last summer and Ollie Watkins from Brentford to Aston Villa the previous year, so it seems likely that a swarm of suitors will now come after Brereton Diaz while he is still in the Championship.

The Latest: Everton target Brereton Diaz

According to reports relayed by The Daily Mail, Everton are now fighting both Leeds United and newly-promoted Bournemouth for Brereton Diaz, while Sevilla, Real Betis and Valencia have also registered an interest from La Liga.

The striker would cost in the region of £13m, given that he only has one year left on his current deal at Ewood Park.

The Verdict: Sign him

Once dubbed a ‘beast‘ by his Blackburn manager Tony Mowbray, Brereton Diaz is a handful for defenders, as his 6 foot 2 stature would suggest.

At 23 years of age, the Chile international will only get better with a taste of Premier League football, and with the Everton future of Moise Kean in doubt, Brereton Diaz could be the perfect low-risk replacement.

Also, he shares the same agent as five other Toffees players, which could help to push a deal through.
