Leeds interested in signing Blackburn Rovers star Ben Brereton

Leeds United are interested in signing Blackburn Rovers star Ben Brereton.

Chile's RedGol says Leeds are eyeing Brereton this summer after his impressive displays for Chile at the Copa America.

Brereton's stock is high after his shock call up to the Chile squad before scoring in just his second game to inspire a 1-0 win over Bolivia, and now his displays could be rewarded with a move to the Premier League, with Leeds keen to bolster their squad with a new winger.

The 22-year-old has just one year remaining on his contract at Ewood Park and the club could be forced to consider a sale or risk losing him on a free transfer next year.

Leeds are now ready to pounce, with boss Marcelo Bielsa a long-time admirer of Brereton.
