    But Rovers’ £15million valuation is putting them all off.

    And time is now running out before the transfer window shuts on September 1.

    Ewood Park chiefs know Brereton Diaz could leave for nothing next summer.

    They hope to persuade him to sign a contract extension with a big pay-rise and a number Rovers will sell at if clubs come calling again.

    Brereton Diaz scored 22 goals in 37 Championship outings last season.

    This term he has bagged against Swansea and West Brom for Jon Dahl Tomasson’s side.

    He has won 14 caps for Chile, scoring four goals.

    These include a strike at last year’s Copa America, as well as one against Argentina in World Cup qualifying.
