On Monday, we relayed news stating that Burnley have made an offer to sign Mike Trésor and shouldn’t have an issue agreeing personal terms with the Genk star.

Vincent Kompany has been an admirer of the winger and would love to bring him to Turf Moor.

Today’s Het Belang van Limburg states Burnley have stepped up a gear in their hunt for the 24-year-old.

The Clarets have returned to the Premier League and invested over €100m on new signings this summer. In order to comply with FFP rules, the report states the English club are looking to sign Trésor on a loan deal with a mandatory purchase option.

HBVL say the Jupiler Pro League side were initially hoping to collect €25m for the Belgium international’s exit but would now settle for a deal worth around €18-20m including bonuses.

Kompany, who wanted to sign Trésor last summer, is the ‘greatest asset’ for his club in this operation.

It’s claimed negotiations are progressing well between the two clubs, and the player also sits at the table to discuss personal terms with Burnley.

The newspaper adds ‘there is still work to be done’ with regards to the attacker’s salary since Burnley are not ready to propose a ‘dizzying contract’.

Trésor managed eight goals and 24 assists last season, and if Kompany and Burnley can somehow convince him, they can get the deal over the line.
