Burnley In Three Way Battle For Full-Back
Burnley will battle AC Milan and Liverpool for the signing of FC Copenhagen full-back Ludwig Augustinsson, according to media reports in Italy. It’s believed that both Liverpool and AC Milan tried to sign the left-back in the summer but couldn’t get a deal over the line and now Burnley are keen to beat them both in the race to sign him.
The 22-year-old Swedish international looks set to leave Copenhagen in January and Burnley are expected to go in for him. The Clarets have had issues at full-back so far this season and Augustinsson could be the ideal candidate to resolve them.
Augustinsson can also play as a wing-back or as a midfielder, so he will bring some versatility to the squad, something which is invaluable in modern football. AC Milan look like the favourites to sign the defender, but Burnley will try to persuade him to move to Turf Moor.
