Salernitana look to close move for Blackburn’s Ben Brereton Diaz

Serie A side Salernitana are looking to close their move for Blackburn Rovers star Ben Brereton Diaz.

Gianluca di Marzio has reported that the Salerno-based club’s sporting director Morgan de Sanctis was in London recently to potentially close the deal for Brereton Diaz. Eintracht Frankfurt and Lyon in Ligue 1 are also said to be interested in the 23-year-old forward right now.

De Sanctis held a meeting with the player to convince him to join the club and Salernitana are now working in their bid to close the deal for the player this summer. His current deal at Blackburn runs out next summer.

Despite being born in England, the striker plays for the Chilean national team and in 36 Championship games last season, he scored 22 goals and grabbed three assists. He has already scored four goals for the Chilean national team, finding the back of the net in the Copa America for the country already.
