Birmingham have made an offer for Ecuador striker Cristian Benitez, according to the player's agent.

Benitez, 23, currently plays in Mexico for Santos Laguna and has been tracked for several months by Wigan and other Premier League clubs.

"Birmingham have made an official offer for the player, who is one of the most talented players in South America," the Ecuador international's advisor Barry McIntosh told Sky Sports.

"Naturally, the offer from Birmingham is being seriously considered, but in the past 24 hours there has been a number of other interested parties in England, who are looking to up their bid to secure the player."

McIntosh added: "At this stage it would be premature to say precisely who the other suitors are. They are bigger clubs within the top six to eight of the league."
