Sean Dyche Interested In Sky Bet Championship Striker Watkins
According to Sky Sports, Premier League Burnley Football Club are keen to bring forward Ollie Watkins of Brentford to Turf Moor in the January transfer window. However the Sky Bet Championship side are surprisingly looking for around £20 million for his signature.
The Clarets are looking at delving into the Championship for potential signings for the January transfer window as Sean Dyche looks to bolster his squad. They are currently looking to rekindle their interest in West Bromwich striker Jay Rodriguez.
Ollie Watkins is an option for the Clarets if they are prepared to pay a big fee to lure him to Turf Moor. He has been the subject of interest from the Premier League since his move to Brentford. He made the switch to Griffin Park from Exeter City in July 2017 for just £1.8 million and has scored eleven goals in all competitions last season.
Watkins has so far managed four goals so far in this campaign and is very highly-rated by the new Bees’ boss Thomas Frank, who will be looking to keep hold of him in January.
