Tottenham Hotspur have learned how much it would cost to land Blackburn Rovers striker Ben Brereton-Diaz.
Football London’s Alasdair Gold revealed on his YouTube channel this week that Spurs hold ‘a little bit of interest’ in Brereton-Diaz.
He doesn’t believe there has been formal contact up to this point, but says it’s a move the club could explore.
The 23-year-old was originally set to be out of contract this summer, but Blackburn exercised an option to extend his deal by a further 12 months.
Richard Jolly, a senior football correspondent at The Independent, revealed Rovers’ likely price tag for the Chilean, stating they will ‘listen to offers’ in order to avoid losing him for nothing next summer.
‘They might ask’ for £20million for the striker, who is also a target for La Liga outfit Sevilla.
Brereton-Diaz may well be the perfect candidate to provide cover and competition for Harry Kane.
His goalscoring record – 22 in 37 Championship appearances last season and four in his first 14 caps for Chile – suggests he could be a dependable stand-in.
Journalist Will Lancaster says he did an ‘amazing job‘ in the second tier in 2021/22 after previously struggling for goals.
Perhaps most crucially, Gold suspects that he ‘would probably okay’ being a back-up to Kane.
