Blackburn: Brereton Diaz will stay despite interest from Arsenal and Newcastle

Blackburn are planning to keep striker Ben Brereton Diaz in the January window — even if he leaves for nothing in the summer, according to The Sun.

Owners Venky’s are happy to take the loss as the Chile hitman’s goals are giving them their best shot at promotion since they took over.

The 23-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and several Premier League and foreign clubs are interested.

Sevilla and Nice were keen in the summer and West Ham are amongst his Premier League admirers, but Rovers’ £15m valuation put some of his suitors off.

The 21-year-old is now reportedly interesting Arsenal as well as Newcastle.
