Burnley striker Wout Weghorst is being eyed by PSV Eindhoven as they look to add a striker to their squad in the summer transfer window.

That’s according to Eindhovens Dagblad, relayed by Voetbal Primeur, who say the striker is on the list of options being eyed by Marcel Brands and co.

The newspaper explains that PSV ‘must search’ for a new striker in the summer, and there are ‘various names’ currently on the list, including Weghorst.

The Dutch club are set to lose Eran Zahavi unless there is a drastic change in the situation, while Carlos Vinicius could also be on his way.

The Brazilian is currently on a two-year lain from Benfica, but there is interest from his homeland, and that could leave PSV without both of their first-choice strikers next season.

A list of options is being drawn up, and Weghorst, who only joined Burnley in the January transfer window as a replacement for Chris Wood following his move to Newcastle United, is on it.

He was ‘mentioned recently’ as an option, and ED state that is true, but he is nowhere near being a ‘top candidate’ at this moment in time.

That can always change in future, of course, and it is made clear PSV need to make their moves at ‘lightning speed’ as the Champions League qualifiers are set to start at the beginning of August.

Whether Burnley or Weghorst would be interest in a deal isn’t mentioned either, although that is likely to depend on their Premier League status.

If they stay up this season, then it’s easy to see them resisting a deal, but relegation could see an overhaul and Weghorst seeking a move away, given he’s specifically stated he joined to play in the top flight.

It’s all up in the air, and it seems PSV aren’t super keen at this point anyway, but Weghorst is certainly on their list nonetheless.
