Competition for target

Burnley will reportedly have to see off strong competition from elsewhere if they are to land Spezia right-back Emil Holm this summer. The Lancashire side were linked with the Sweden international in the January transfer window but a switch to England didn’t materialise in the end.

The 22-year-old spent time on loan at SönderjyskE last term to get some experience under his belt. According to Italian news outlet Corriere di Torino (via Tutto Juve), Serie A giants Juventus are now keeping tabs on his situation and could launch a swoop at the end of this season.

The Clarets take on Ipswich Town tonight in their FA Cup replay. However, their boss Kieran McKenna has admitted that their clash against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday in League One is more important.

Ahead of the Tractor Boys’ trip to Burnley, the ex-Manchester United coach has said, as per TWTD: “I think we all know going into next week that Sheffield Wednesday is the biggest game of the week but on the other hand we need to be competitive as a squad.

“We have worked hard to get to that point and we need to go on and make sure that we represent ourselves with pride. So we need to find the right balance to do that while making sure that we have a good team ready for Saturday.”
