Clarets Transfer Targets

Burnley Transfer Targets

There have been a number of players linked with the Clarets this summer and currently it is rumoured that Sean Dyche is chasing the following players for the 2017-18 Premier League campaign.  There have been a number of links to the left-back position and of course should Michael Keane move away from Turf Moor this summer the centre-back position would be a target for Sean Dyche.

The Clarets boss is also looking to strengthen the midfield areas with the departure of George Boyd and Joey Barton and there has been a lack of goals for the Clarets so a new striker at the club is something that is needed over the summer.

Both Burnley and Newcastle United are believed to be interested in signing Liverpool and England U20 World Cup winning winger Sheyi Ojo on a season long loan.  Ojo has made 2 appearances for Liverpool last season and 11 appearances for Wolves in a successful loan period.


Ojo is facing a lack of first-team opportunities at Liverpool next season and set to be loaned out to continue his development.  Ojo became English football’s most expensive 14 year-old when he joined Liverpool from MK Dons in 2011 for £2m.

The Clarets have so far been linked to as least three left-backs over the summer with Andrew Robertson (Hull City), Charlie Taylor (Leeds United) and Joe Bryan (Bristol City) all of which are looking for a move away from their current teams this summer.

There has also been speculation around a swop deal with Everton Football Club that would see Michael Keane trandfer to Everton and midfielder James McCarthy join the irish team mates at Turf Moor.


The club has also been linked with former Claret striker Jay Rodriguez although West Bromwich Albion look favourites to sign him for £12M from Southampton.
