LEEDS are checking out Blackburn goal machine Ben Brereton Diaz — but the asking price is putting off bidders.
The Whites are desperate for an extra attacker after struggling for goals when Patrick Bamford was sidelined.
And Brereton Diaz, who has 17 goals in the Championship this term, could be the man to fit the bill.
Leeds will not want to rely on just Bamford staying fit for the rest of the campaign.
Especially, given he faces more time on the treatment table after suffering a hamstring injury while celebrating a goal against Brentford.
However, they will face competition from Spanish side Sevilla who, are also keen on the 22-year-old.
Brighton are also said to be in the running for Brereton Diaz's signature, if he moves in January.
The new Chile international is in the form of his life for club and country, but clubs are now aware he could cost around £25million.

He is one of a handful of stars Rovers will be looking to tie down in new deals, or risk losing them for nothing.
