According to Fabrizio Romano, after a summer of speculation, a bid has finally been made for Blackburn Rovers attacker Ben Brereton Diaz.

The Chilean international has long been touted as a player who could move this summer. After all, he enjoyed a breakout season in the Championship last term and he’s entering the final year of his contract in Lancashire.

Both Leeds United and Tottenham Hotspur have been credited with an interest in the Championship star, but according to Romano, this bid comes from Ligue 1 as Nice eye up a move for Brereton Diaz.

The French club have reportedly bid €10m (£8.5m) for the attacker.

Nice certainly have an eye on the UK market this summer, they’ve already signed Kasper Schmeichel and Aaron Ramsey, while a loan offer for Nicolas Pepe is also reportedly in from the French outfit.

This would be something of a step up for Brereton Diaz. After all, he’s only ever played at Championship level and Nice are a Europa League side, but if any player is ready to throw himself in the deep end, it’s this young man.

Indeed, Brereton Diaz is no stranger to taking a gamble with his career. At the age of 22 he decided to play for Chile, despite being born in Stoke-on-Trent, and it’s fair to say that his international decision worked for the best.

He’s been a star in South America over the past 12 months and his club form has improved drastically since he made his international bow.

Brereton Diaz is certainly a player who likes to take a risk or two, and a move to Nice may well appeal to him for that reason.

Leeds and Spurs may be keen, but given that the striker loves a challenge, he may be more inclined to head to France if he is to leave Blackburn this summer.
