Ashley Young to Burnley transfers last with Clarets offer on table but rivals are interested
Burnley has offered Ashley Young a contract as they seek a deal for the Inter Milan star.
The Clarets have filed a one-year deal with an additional 12-month option as they look to make the ex-Manchester United man their first signing of the summer.
Young, who is evaluating Burnley’s offer, is out of contract at San Siro after helping Inter win Serie A last season.
Manager Antonio Conte left the club following his triumph and Simone Inzaghi took over.
It is understood he is ready to offer Young, 35, a one-year contract, while reports also suggest other Premier League clubs are fond of the former England international.
Watford had been heavily linked with Young’s return to where he began his career, but the Hornets are closing in on a deal for Danny Rose, seemingly ending that prospect.
It has been reported that another anonymous Premier League club are also in talks with representatives of the left-back.
Young was a teammate of Burnley boss Sean Dyche during the Clarets chief’s two-year stint at Watford as a player between 2003-05.
Dyche is keen to strengthen his ranks this summer and acquiring Young would bring him experience, leadership and versatility.
He played as a left-winger for Inter but is able to cover both full-back positions and wide midfield, an area Burnley is desperately short of.
While he wouldn’t be a long-term answer, given his age, he comes fresh from a season where he has played 34 times in all competitions for Inter and would certainly add something to the Clarets’ ranks.
