RSPAN on Nexus 3548

Hi Expert

I can not pass RSPAN traffic through Nexus 3548 where it is intermediate switch in my network. my sources switch model cat3750 and collector switch is nexus 9508. N3k is in between them but it can not pass my RSPAN traffic. Is there any solution? I attach my network topology.
