Burnley transfer gossip: Clarets eye up former EPL winner, English club plot raid for Turf Moor international
Now that the dust is beginning to settle on England’s heroic Euro 2020 run, Burnley fans can once again start looking forward to the return of the Premier League.
The Clarets have already dipped their toe into the transfer market to bring in centre-back Nathan Collins, but they might not be done there.
Sean Dyche has made it clear that there are more funds available to add to his squad, and this latest batch of speculation suggests that there are still irons in the fire at Turf Moor.
Here are today’s Burnley rumours…
Clarets still keen on Albrighton
Burnley are still interested in signing Leicester City wide man Marc Albrighton.
The Clarets have been linked with the former Premier League winner for several weeks now, and although they are yet to submit a formal bid, he remains on their radar, as per Lancs Live.
The 31-year-old has been with the Foxes since 2014, and still has one year remaining on his contract at the King Power.
Albrighton has dropped down the pecking order a little in recent times, however.
Peacock-Farrell set to leave?
Sheffield Wednesday are looking to sign Bailey Peacock-Farrell on loan, although they may face competition for the Burnley keeper, according to The Sun.
The Northern Irishman featured four times for the Clarets in the Premier League last term, conceding 14 goals in the process.
Nick Pope firmly remains Sean Dyche’s number one, however, and with Burnley being linked with a move for Czech keeper Jiri Pavleka, the 24-year-old could drop even further down the pecking order.
