Mike Trésor starred for Genk last season, managing eight goals and 24 assists from 42 games. This has seen him attract interest from several clubs, including Burnley.

Back in June, Voetbalkrant reported Vincent Kompany wants the winger at Turf Moor. Fast forward to August and today’s Het Belang van Limburg has a report on the Clarets’ interest in the star.

It’s claimed the 24-year-old has received interest from several Premier League sides, but only Burnley are mentioned.

The report adds the Clarets ‘stand out’ in the race to sign the Belgium international.

Kompany seems to be leading the chase and had been a fan of the player for a long time. In fact, HBVL state the manager ‘would love to’ have the attacker at his disposal at Burnley.

It won’t be easy for Burnley to sign Trésor because of the competition from other Premier League sides and his €25m asking price. The newspaper suggests the English club may not be willing to pay this fee.

Apart from Burnley, earlier claims from the Belgian press had stated Fulham, Crystal Palace and West Ham United as the clubs interested in securing the player’s services.
