Burnley have made a bid for Clermont Foot goalkeeper Mory Diaw but face competition from France for his signature.

That’s according to L’Equipe, who say Diaw is set to leave Clermont following their relegation to Ligue 2 and Burnley are one of his suitors.

The newspaper explains that Clermont will not stand in Diaw’s way this summer, with him having expressed a desire to move on following their relegation a couple of weeks ago.

They value the goalkeeper at around €2m, a relatively low fee in the modern game, and one several clubs have taken notice of.

Nantes have him on their list of options, offering an immediate return to Ligue 1, as they need a replacement for Alban Lafont, while Lens have also asked for information on him.

Burnley have seemingly gone one step further than them, though, and made a bid for the 30-year-old stopper, although the nature of that bid isn’t mentioned.

They may need a new goalkeeper this summer as James Trafford has been linked with a move to Newcastle, who have reportedly turned their attention to him after finding other targets too expensive.

A departure would leave Burnley with Arijanet Muric and Lawrence Vigouroux as goalkeeping options and it seems they’re looking at Diaw as a potential addition to the mix.
