Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen Leeds United being linked with Lyon winger Maxwel Cornet, but they aren’t the only ones, as Burnley FC are also on the case.
The news comes from L’Equipe, who report the forward have ‘approached’ the Ligue 1 side’s board to try and ‘determine the conditions to sign’ the Ivory Coast international, and they got their answer.
The outlet explain Lyon ‘are waiting for around €13m’ before giving the green light for a sale, described as an amount that ‘doesn’t scare’ Sean Dyche’s club.
While that’s good news for Burnley, it’s explained that, as things stand, Turf Moor ‘isn’t the player’s priority’, as he has his eyes on another interested team: Hertha Berlin.
The Bundesliga side have a habit of picking up players from Ligue 1 or French speaking players, as Lucas Tousart, Mattéo Guendouzi or even Dodi Lukebakio, have all had spells there.
As for Burnley, it seems they will need to be extra convincing to get their man.
