Could the Premier League be set for Max Power surge in January?

Burnley FC - Turf Moor

The Premier League may experience a Max Power surge in January, with the Tranmere Rovers midfielder reported to be of interest to Burnley.

Max Power is not only the proud owner of one of the finest names in sport, he is also a more than capable footballer.

The Merseyside native may be about to get the opportunity to showcase those talents on the grandest of stages, with interest in his services said to be building ahead of the January transfer window.

His efforts since emerging out of the academy system at Tranmere Rovers have helped to catch the eye of those further up the footballing food chain.

It is not just in England either that his ability has been noted, with Glasgow giants Celtic and Rangers reported to be keen on taking the 21-year-old to Scotland.

It may be that he decides that is a smart career move at this stage, allowing him to gain experience of the pressures of life at a top club before heading home in the not too distant future.

Power could have some big decisions to make, though, as clubs from the first and second tiers in England are also readying raids on Prenton Park.

Championship Sheffield Wednesday are eyeing up a potential bargain, while Burnley feel Power’s potential is ready for the Premier League – according to the Daily Mail.

It is understood that an offer of around £400,000 would be enough to lure the youngster away from his roots and open a new chapter.

Tranmere would certainly struggle to turn down such money were it to be tabled, with their troubles this season having dropped them towards the foot of League Two.

Power has been able to catch the eye in a difficult campaign, though, with his energy in the middle of the park convincing the likes of Sean Dyche and Stuart Gray that he is ready for a step up in class.
