Sevilla, Southampton eyeing Blackburn Rovers striker Ben Brereton Diaz

Sevilla are showing interest in Blackburn Rovers striker Ben Brereton Diaz.

The Blackburn and Chile striker has been in red-hot form this season, with 16 goals in 20 appearances in all competitions.

The Sun says his goalscoring displays have attracted the attention of Spanish outfit Sevilla, who are leading the race for his signature.

Julen Lopetegui's side are thought to have scouted Brereton Diaz, 22, personally both for his country and in the Championship for Rovers.

Blackburn reportedly want around £20million for their striking centrepiece, who has become crucial to the second-tier side since Adam Armstrong's sale to Southampton this summer for £15m.

Ralph Hasenhuttl's Saints are also said to be interested in bringing Stoke-born Brereton Diaz to the club to partner Armstrong, but may have to sell a forward first to raise the funds to buy him.
