Fulham have made an initial offer for Blackburn striker Ben Brereton Diaz as they aim for at least one attacking signing before the transfer window shuts.

The prolific Chile international has plenty of Premier League interest and could move despite his match-winning display in the Championship last night.

Brereton Diaz is also wanted by Everton and Aston Villa and is said to be valued at around £15million.

His goals have helped Blackburn push for promotion, they currently sit in fifth place after his efforts last year which saw him score 22 goals in 37 league matches.

The offer comes after Fulham missed out on signing Roma's Justin Kluivert in an £11m deal that collapsed over work permit bureaucracy.

Reports in Portugal also suggest that Fulham have made a £5m plus add-ons offer for former Tottenham striker Carlos Vinicius, who is now at Portuguese giants Benfica.

The Cottagers have sealed two other transfers which will be announced on deadline day. Former Chelsea and Arsenal winger Willian has completed his contract signing and medical, with an announcement now imminent.

Similarly, left-back Layvin Kurzawa's loan move from Paris Saint-Germain is completed and will be announced in due course.
