Spanish Liga pair Atletico Madrid and Valencia are chasing Blackburn Rovers midfielder David Bentley.

The Sunday Mirror says both Valencia and Atletico will offer Bentley the chance to further his footballing education abroad with £10 million offers.

The La Liga big-hitters are aware of each other's growing interest and are putting together rival bids to prise Bentley away from Ewood Park in January.

The two clubs have also made it clear they will return in the summer if Blackburn decide against cashing in on their right-sided play-maker during the transfer window.
