The 22-year-old has bagged an impressed 17 goals in 21 appearances this season for the Lancashire-based club, and with three goals for Chile, the striker is hot property and Leeds will be hoping he wants to make a step-up in January.

However, a report via the Sun claims Blackburn would demand a fee around £25million for Ben Brereton Diaz – a fee that doesn’t seem to be putting off the struggling Premier League side.
