Tottenham Hotspur are considering a move for Blackburn Rovers striker Ben Brereton Diaz, according to reports in the last 48 hours.
The Lowdown: Exit on the cards
The Ewood Park forward’s contract is set to expire at the end of the season and it’s believed that he’s told Jon Dahl Tomasson’s side that he won’t be putting to pen to paper on a new deal.
The Lancashire outfit must therefore now decide whether to cash in on him during the winter market or risk losing him on a free next summer, and there are seven potential suitors waiting to snap him up in the Premier League.
The Latest: Spurs scout Brereton Diaz
According to 90min, Spurs, alongside Manchester United, West Ham, Aston Villa, Crystal Palace, Brighton and Wolves, have all been ‘in attendance’ to watch Brereton Diaz over the past few weeks, with scouts ‘out in force’.
Antonio Conte’s side are one of the several clubs ‘interested’ and ‘ready to make their move’ in 2023, with a fee in the region of £10m set to be enough to seal a deal in January.
The Verdict: Get it done…
Tottenham have been severely hampered by injuries of late, with Harry Kane being given no choice but to play every game due to the lack of attacking players available, so Brereton Diaz would be a great signing to add some squad depth.
The Stoke On Trent-born talent also offers plenty of versatility having operated in midfield and on the left wing as well as at centre-forward, which makes him the perfect profile of player for Conte at an absolute bargain price.
