West Ham are retaining an interest in Blackburn Rovers front man Ben Brereton Diaz.
We have been linked with the 23 year old for several months – albeit at some times tentatively – but CandH understands that he remains on the manager David Moyes’ list of targets.
It has been made clear to us on several occasions that there are lots of names on the list of players interesting the manager and whilst Chelsea’s Armando Broja appears to be at the head of the list, Diaz is certainly another on the cards.
We have been told by a good source close to the player that interest has been shown by the Hammers and that the price will probably be in the region of £25 million.
However, the manager and board will need to move quickly if reports in The Mirror are correct that Leeds United are also keen on the Chilean who scored 25 goals in 47 games last season
