Wolves can land a season saviour in Brereton-Diaz

Wolves are one of several Premier League sides monitoring Blackburn Rovers talisman Ben Brereton-Diaz ahead of January and the striker could be the man to save the Old Gold’s season.

According to 90min, Wolves have scouted the Chile international but could face competition from the likes of Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, West Ham, Aston Villa, Crystal Palace and Everton in any potential deal.

The 23-year-old, who could cost £10m, has enjoyed a strong start to the season for Jon Dahl Tomasson’s side, hitting ten goals in all competitions, including nine in the Championship, as the Ewood Park outfit currently sit second in the league.

This is more than Wolves have managed as a whole in the Premier League, with their eight goals in the top flight the fewest of any side, with the two strikes they managed in last weekend’s defeat against Brighton the first time they had scored more than once in a league game this term.

Injury problems have not helped the Old Gold, as Raul Jimenez, Sasa Kalajdzic and Pedro Neto are all currently sidelined, while Diego Costa’s arrival on a free transfer has been something of a disaster so far with the ex-Chelsea man failing to find the net.

Therefore, signing a striker in January will surely be a priority for new manager Julen Lopetegui, and Brereton-Diaz’s sensational form across the last two campaigns suggests that he could fit the bill as Wolves look to avoid relegation back to the Championship.

It may be difficult to prise him away from Ewood Park given the two sides’ respective positions in 2022/23, but with his contract set to expire at the end of the season, Blackburn could be forced to sell the young forward in January.

Tony Mowbray was full of praise for the former Nottingham Forest man when he was still making a name for himself as a youngster in Blackburn’s team in 2020

He said:” Brereton with the ball at his feet is an extraordinary talent. He’s a wonderful footballer who can dribble with both feet, take people out of the game.”

Can you guess which Wolves player scored the most goals in all competitions during the season in question? Let's start with 2010/11...

The Chilean forward has certainly lived up to that praise over the last few years and if he arrives at Molineux in January, his goals might just be the difference between Wolves staying in the Premier League or dropping into the Championship.
