Clarets Lead The Race For Stoke City’s £10M Rated Defender Nathan Collins
Burnley Football Club are set to beat Arsenal in the race to sign Stoke City centre-back Nathan Collins, the Potters defender is seen as an ideal replacement for James Tarkowski who looks set to leave Turf Moor in the summer. Sean Dyche is looking to bid £10 million for the irishman and he has a real chance of bring the defender to the club.
Collins, has moved ahead of Nottingham Forest’s Joe Worrall in Sean Dyche wish list with a string of impressive performances. The young irishman is the type of signing the new American owners want for their long-term plans. The Gunners also have their sights on young colossus Collins as a future star and from the club where they found legendary pair Lee Dixon and Steve Bould.
The bidding could even start this week ahead of the transfer deadline, Stoke City will be looking for more than £10M but an offer in that range could seal the transfer. Arsenal would have to find the cash whilst the Clarets already have funds available following the club takeover. Crystal Palace are also keen as they have several defenders out of contract this summer.
