It appears that Burnley are now facing some strong competition when it comes to their pursuit of FC Metz striker Georges Mikautadze.

The forward has had a season to remember in Ligue 2, scoring 23 goals and picking up eight assists in 36 league games, and that’s caught the eye of quite a few clubs, including Wolverhampton Wanderers.

This comes from Le10 Sport as part of an article reporting Lyon’s interest in the 22-year-old, as they claim both Burnley and Wolves are ‘on the case’.

Not only that, but both English clubs are ‘ready to align themselves’ with Metz’s €20m asking price for the prolific forward.

What they will have to contend with, however, is the possible affinity Mikautadze has for Lyon, having been born there and already featured for them at youth level.

Whether he wants to get a second chance there isn’t said, but that’s something to think about, as Burnley and Wolves ready themselves for a summer of strengthening in hope of avoiding a relegation fight next year.

Furthermore, Julen Lopetegui’s side will need to replace Raul Jimenez, who appears to have fallen out of the Spaniard’s plans going forward.
