Burnley Interested in Gonzalo Escalante
Media reports (Sky Sports) suggest that Burnley are interested in signing Argentinian midfielder Gonzalo Escalante from Spanish club Eibar. The Basque La Liga side finished tenth in the league last season with the 24-year old playing a key role in central midfield.
Sky Sources in Spain say Sean Dyche’s scouting team have been monitoring Escalante for the past year and believe they could do a deal for the playmaker for around £6 million.
Burnley have already signed Jack Cork from Swansea, Jonathan Walters from Stoke City and Charlie Taylor from Leeds United, whilst Rouwen Hennings has left Turf Moor for German side Dusseldorf. The Clarets begin their Premier League campaign against the Premier League Champions Chelsea on the 12th August 12 at Stamford Bridge.
