Burnley In Talks to Sign Midfielder Baptisie Santamaria
Burnley Football Club have held talks over a move for Angers Football Club midfielder Baptiste Santamaria. The holding midfielder who has been compared to N’Golo Kante was a £12million target for Aston Villa earlier this year and has been interesting both Leicester City and Everton Football Club.
Speaking about Santamaria last month, Angers manager Stephane Moulin admitted he expected to lose his key man. ‘We are in the process of preparing for the future without him, but we hope it will be with him. It is very clear, Baptiste did an additional season last year with us. We said that if an offer comes in of the value that we are expecting and he likes it, he will be the next on the list of players to leave us. There is maybe a big chance (of that happening), but we have not received an offers at the moment.
