Report: Haris Vuckic for Burnley transfer after impressing with Rangers

Burnley FC - Turf Moor

Burnley have reportedly made Rangers forward Haris Vuckic a summer target.

According to the Daily Mail, Burnley have been impressed with Haris Vuckic's performances for Rangers, and could target him this summer.

The Clarets are fighting relegation, but after a recent 1-0 home win over Manchester City, Sean Dyche's men have a great chance of defying the odds and staying up.

Despite not knowing which division they will be in next season, Burnley already appear to be making plans for the transfer window - and reports today suggest that Vuckic is a target.

The Daily Mail believe that Vuckic's displays for Rangers have caught Burnley's attention, with the Slovenian scoring five goals during his loan spell from Newcastle United, including a brace in Rangers' 4-1 win over Cowdenbeath last weekend.

The 22-year-old is out of contract in a year's time, and seemingly has no future at Newcastle, so could leave St. James' Park permanently this summer.

The speculation would certainly be a blow to Rangers, who would like to keep Vuckic for next season as well should they earn promotion back to the Scottish Premiership, according to the Daily Mail.

Yet the chance to stay in the Premier League - if Burnley achieve survival - could be too good to turn down for Vuckic, who has really proven himself as a goalscoring threat during his time at Ibrox.
