Wolves make ‘transfer enquiry’ for international striker amid Leeds United and West Ham United interest

Some striker news is on the agenda at Molineux.

Wolverhampton Wanderers have made a ‘transfer enquiry’ for Blackburn Rovers and Chile international striker, Ben Brereton Diaz.

That’s according to Football League World who state that Wolves could look to test the water with the Championship side following the knee injury suffered by their current starting forward, Raul Jimenez.

The Chilean international could be available for a cut-price fee due to the fact he only has one-year left on his current contract at Ewood Park but a number of clubs are said to be showing interest in the 23-year-old.

Journalist Pete O’Rourke reports that Diaz is ‘on the list’ of fellow Premier League sides, Leeds United and West Ham United, whilst European giants Sevilla are also said to be monitoring the situation.

With Jimenez potentially missing up to eight league games and Fabio Silva on loan with Anderlecht, the gold and black currently have zero natural senior forwards on their books and are desperate for some reinforcements up that end of the pitc.

Diaz, who represented England at youth level before switching allegiance to Chile as a senior, was arguably the best striker in the Championship last season and racked up 21 goals and three assists for Rovers in 37 appearances.
