Burnley manager Vincent Kompany is an admirer of KRC Genk star Mike Trésor and is keen on bringing him to Turf Moor. On Tuesday, Het Belang van Limburg stated the Clarets want to sign the winger on a loan deal with a mandatory purchase option of €18-20m.

The Belgian club will face Adana Demirspor in a Europa Conference League play-off on Thursday and Trésor was left out of the squad for the trip to Turkey.

Genk technical director Dimitri De Condé has admitted his side are in talks with Burnley for the 24-year-old’s transfer, and his comments are relayed by Het Laatste Nieuws.

“As far as Mike is concerned, negotiations with Burnley are currently ongoing. It’s getting closer and closer, but I always say: something isn’t complete until it’s drawn. Mike’s case is the only one that’s very active right now,” he said.

The latest report from HBVL claims Burnley and the Jupiler Pro League side have reached an agreement in principle for the Belgium international’s transfer.

The two clubs still need to clarify several details but the report adds it’s expected the deal to take the player to the Premier League side could be made official as early as today.

Trésor starred for Genk last season, managing eight goals and 24 assists from 42 games, and his arrival at Burnley will certainly provide Kompany more options in the attack.
