Burnley Reject Loan to Buy Offer From Everton For Maxwell Cornet
Everton Football Club have seen a bid for Maxwel Cornet rejected by Burnley Football Club because it was a ‘loan with a view’ to bid for the midfielder. Frank Lampard hoped to land the Ivory Coast ace as a replacement for Brazilian forward Richarlison who recently joined Tottenham Hotspurs.
The offer from Frank Lampard was to take the speedy Clarets winger Maxwell Cornet on a season long loan and if Everton stay in the premier League then thy would like to buy the Ivory Coast International on a permanent deal from the Clarets. Maxwell Cornet is keen to stay in the Premier League and the Clarets would sell for £18million, although the Scousers will have to pay on a guaranteed basis.
Burnley Boss Vincent Kompany requires the revenue from the sale to finance their own summer transfer moves for a new goalkeeper and to complete the move for Coventry City midfielder Callum O’Hare. Both deals are expensive and the Clarets need funds to land them and have them in bosses new-look squad.
Rival clubs have also asked about Cornet, who would like to move to Everton Football Club, but may have to take another move if the fee is paid properly to the Turf Moor outfit. Frank Lampard is also chasing other players and has tried similar ‘pay-as-you-play’ deals for Dele Alli when he signed from Tottenham. The Goodison club would also like to be in the chase for Wolves midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White, but that would take more money than they currently have to spend.
