West Ham United want Ben Brereton Diaz and scouted him in action for Blackburn Rovers against Lincoln City on Saturday afternoon.

The Hammers remain in the hunt for attacking additions this summer and seem to have a few targets in mind.

Gianluca Scamacca appears to be closing in on a move from Sassuolo whilst Armando Broja has also been linked.

Add in recent rumours linking wingers and attacking midfielders with West Ham – think Filip Kostic, Dwight McNeil and Jesse Lingard – and it’s clear that David Moyes wants attacking impact.

West Ham United want Ben Brereton Diaz

One name regularly mentioned throughout 2022 is Blackburn Rovers attacker Ben Brereton Diaz.

AS in Chile reported last week that both Leeds United and West Ham had made moves to try and sign Brereton Diaz.

With a deal for Broja now looking a little unlikely, West Ham could turn to Brereton Diaz as a versatile forward.

Brereton Diaz can play up front or even on the left flank, potentially giving Moyes a flexible attacking threat.

The 23-year-old racked up 22 goals in 37 Championship appearances last season, with West Ham now very interested.

Brereton Diaz started in Rovers’ 1-0 win with West Ham weighing up their move for the attacker.

Brereton Diaz is into the final year of his Blackburn contract now and the Championship club could be tempted into a sale.

The Premier League surely beckons for Brereton Diaz, who once looked destined for stardom after emerging at Nottingham Forest.

It look Brereton Diaz a while to really hit top form though and he has even become an international hero, bagging four goals in 14 caps for Chile.

West Ham love signing Championship players such as Jarrod Bowen and Flynn Downes, with Brereton Diaz potentially representing their latest raid on the second tier.
