Marseille, Lyon in contact with Blackburn for Ben Brereton-Diaz

Olympique Marseille and Olympique Lyon are chasing Blackburn Rovers striker Ben Brereton-Diaz.

Rovers face having to part with the centre-forward thanks to his growing reputation across Europe after his exploits with Chile.

OM are keen and can offer Brereton-Diaz Champions League football, while Lyon are eager to pair the English-born and raised striker with former Arsenal captain Alexandre Lacazette. He would arrive as a replacement for Moussa Sissoko.

Il Corriere dello Sport says clubs across Europe are in contact with Rovers about a price for Brereton-Diaz.

The 23-year-old striker, capable of playing up front as well as on the flank, scored 22 goals in 37 games in the Championship last season.
