West Ham United are keeping tabs on Blackburn Rovers star forward Ben Brereton Diaz as the end of the window draws near, according to reports.
The Lowdown: Irons in market…

Where will West Ham finish at the end of 2022/2023?
Europa League place
A long 2022/2023 campaign awaits for the east Londoners and they haven’t exactly got off to the best start with three defeats in their last three league games.
The Latest: West Ham eyeing Brereton Diaz…
According to reliable journalist Alan Nixon, it appears West Ham are still eyeing Rovers forward Brereton Diaz amid their search for more quality.
Writing on his Patreon, the reporter claims Brereton Diaz is a man in demand with Everton, Leeds, Sevilla and Nice all mentioned as fellow interested parties.
West Ham are apparently ‘watching developments’, but unlike the aforementioned sides, they’re yet to ‘commit’ to a swoop.
The player is expected to cost just £15m due to his dwindling contract.
The Verdict: Go further…
Having failed to score a single top flight goal so far this season, the Hammers are in real need of some more fire power.
Brereton Diaz, a Chile international, has been in scintillating form since the start of 2021/2022 – scoring 22 goals last season and netting two goals in five this campaign (WhoScored).
Former QPR keeper Paddy Kenny has lavished the ‘on fire’ 23-year-old as a potentially ‘exciting’ addition at Rush Green and it’s hard to disagree with his assessment based off those eye-catching numbers.
However, West Ham still need to fully commit and make a move to get ahead of their rival suitors, and they’re running out of time with September 1 looming.
