Burnley among contenders for signing of powerful defender, Aston Villa ace linked with Serie A exit
The Clarets are hoping for an improved campaign after the summer, after a rather disappointing 2020/21 and some extra quality in the starting XI could be what they need to soar next season.
Giving an overview of the club’s plans for the transfer window, manager Sean Dyche recently revealed: “We’re always open-minded – if we have to mix up the squad, we would.
“We need quality, everyone knows that, sometimes we develop it here, and we have, but we have to find the right mix.
“If we can recruit, can we find the right mix, can someone assign us immediately, immediately push for a first place on the team and have that demand?” Maybe players who could evolve in this area, where we have done well for several years, players who have to sit for several months and then come in.
“Finding that balance in the different areas of the pitch and keeping your eyes and ears open, the little snippets you get in football.
“We hope we get a bit more stretch in finances this summer, we’ll see.”
