Blackburn Rovers’ Ben Brereton is attracting interest from Spanish clubs on the back of his international appearances for Chile, Football League World has been told exclusively.
The Rovers attacker has generated a few headlines in recent weeks after receiving a call-up to the Chilean national team, with him representing the South American nation this summer and becoming a bit of a cult hero of theirs as well in the process, taking the name Ben Brereton Diaz.

Good Morning Britain's Ben Shephard returns to show after leg operation
"I'm going to start bringing in the changes."Earlier this month, the presenter revealed he had undergone surgery after rupturing his ACL, tearing his meniscus and fracturing his leg during a football match.

As things stand, the Spanish quartet are yet to make an official bid for the attacker but, clearly, his Chilean trip has caught the eye further afield than just in this country.
