Burnley launch bid to sign star Championship striker, Guardiola offer made, and more
Burnley have been linked with a move for a top Championship star in today's Premier League rumours.
Burnley are one of a host of teams reportedly interested in signing Charlton Athletic striker Lyle Taylor.
TEAMtalk suggest that the Addicks are desperately trying to persuade Taylor to sign a new deal at The Valley, with Burnley and a host of other teams interested in his signature in January.
Premier League sides Sheffield United and Norwich are also said to be keen, as well as second-tier teams Brentford, Nottingham Forest and Bristol City.
Charlton are now under new ownership, so Addicks boss Lee Bowyer will hope that Taylor can be offered a new deal.
