Clarets On Belguim Scouting Trip

Clarets Scouting Striker Mbwana Samatta

Both the Clarets and Bournemouth Football Club have had club scouts in Belgium this weekend alongside scouts from all around Europe including Arsenal, who were watching the game between Mouscron vs Genk. The Gunners were probably there for prospects such as Sander Berge and Leandro Trossard, it seems more likely that both Sean Dyche and Eddie Howe are keen on players who can assist their team straight away.


Bournemouth are currently looking to improve their central midfield options and were viewing Ruslan Malinovskyi , who seems like the ideal signing for Eddie Howe. Arriving from Shakhtar back in 2017, the Genk midfielder has already eclipsed his tally of seven goals and four assists in forty-two games from last season, with ten goals and eight in twenty-three appearances this season.

Burnley have issues in the goalscoring department with Ashley Barnes and Sam Vokes only scoring four goals between them so far this season, meaning Sean Dyche is in the market for a new striker in the transfer window. The obvious target here is Tanzania International Mbwana Samatta, who has nineteen goals in twenty-three appearances in all competitions this season.

Samatta, is able to find the back of the net with both feet and physical enough to prove a nuisance for defenders in the air. He is currently thriving under Philippe Clement at Genk and is the kind of player that would be interested in a move to the Premier League.
