Burnley are pushing to sign Jacob Bruun Larsen on a permanent basis after his loan deal at Turf Moor this season.

That’s according to journalist Florian Plettenberg, who reports that Burnley consider the 25-year-old a smart purchase after his performances this season.

Larsen joined the Clarets on loan in the summer from TSG Hoffenheim and has been a regular for Vincent Kompany’s side this season, managing six goals in 32 games in the Premier League despite only featuring in 36% of the available minutes.

Hoffenheim are willing to sell him as they have received verbal offers in the range of €7-9m, with a deal making sense as his current contract expires in 2025.

Burnley are pushing to get a deal done, presumably at that price tag, having been impressed by his displays this season.

They also know that there are other teams from the Premier League who are interested in signing him and are seemingly looking to get ahead of them.

The big question is whether Larsen will want the move, or whether he wants to bide his time and see if there’s any other options for him, particularly if there are top flight sides also keen.
