Clarets In Transfer Race For Dinamo Zagreb Midfielder Mislav Orsic
Burnley Football Club are chasing Croatia international midfielder Mislav Orsic from Dinamo Zagreb, the twenty-nine year old is valued at around £10million by his club Dinamo Zagreb who are in no rush to let the midfielder leave.
Orsic who has previously been linked with Arsenal came to the attention of English fans when he scored a hat-trick against Tottenham Hotspurs in the Europa League last year. Orsic also grabbed the winning goal against West Ham United in December, however the Hammers had already qualified for the next stage.
Clarets boss Sean Dyche has money to spend after the shock £25m sale of Chris Wood last week. The fee shattered the Premier League record fee for a thirty year old player. The Turf Moor chief has put a goal-scoring midfielder as well as a striker on his shopping list. The Clarets know the market is a tricky one as they look to beat Premier League relegation.
Burnley have played just seventeen 17 games this season due to their squad shortage and are already six matches behind some Premier League teams including Chelsea. Sean Dyche will need a large squad to navigate the remainder of the season with matches due to come thick and fast.
