Clarets Chasing Swansea City Striker

Joel Piroe – Dutch Striker Interesting Sky Bet Championship Leaders

According to reports in Football League World, Burnley Football Club have increased their interest in Swansea City striker Joel Piroe and look set to make an offer for the striker this summer. Whilst Rangers and Middlesbrough are also keeping tabs on the striker.

Piroe has been on the books of Swansea City since the summer of 2021 and has scored an impressive thirty-eight goals in eighty-two appearances for the South Wales club. But the Swans are failing to kick-on under Russell Martin and could be at risk of losing their fans favourite in the upcoming summer transfer window.

It’s our understanding that the Sky Bet Championship runaway leaders, Burnley are admirers of Michael Obafemi’s former teammate, whilst Middlesbrough and Norwich City are two other promotion hopefuls in the second-tier with an eager eye on Piroe. Rangers offer a very different type of opportunity and the Scottish giants have been scouting the twenty-three year old in recent weeks.

Interest in Piroe is nothing new with Premier League clubs already expressing interest in the Dutchman. Crystal Palace and Everton are two top-flight clubs that have previously explored a deal. Palace held talks in January 2023 but couldn’t piece a deal together and Everton also showed an interest but, ultimately, failed to sign anyone. Piroe started and scored in Swansea City 3-1 defeat to Middlesbrough on Saturday afternoon and will be expected to be involved again tonight against Millwall in the Sky Bet Championship.
