Burnley making an offer for Florin Andone has been big news in the Galicia media, despite Deportivo La Coruna knocking it back.
Variously put at €12m, €14m, and €15m, Deportivo would want a little more, although it’s very unlikely Burnley would have to pay Andone’s €30m buyout clause.
With a slightly better offer, something around €16-17m, Deportivo would have more than enough to get Lucas Perez from Arsenal and would be thrilled with the turnaround.
Andone himself would likely receive a hefty pay rise and the chance for a crack at the Premier League.
With everything up in the air… Andone has picked up an injury. La Voz de Galicia report Andone has been training away from the group today.
The forward has discomfort in the groin area, and it’s unlikely he’ll be fit to play against Real Madrid at the weekend. Andone’s exact prognosis remains unknown.
Andone is the latest player to pick up an injury just as he club refuses a transfer offer, and whilst he may be genuinely injured and this have nothing to do with Burnley’s offer, suspicions of Transferitis can’t be too far away.
