Burnley are considering making a move for Preston striker Callum Robinson.

Premier League outfit Burnley are desperate to sign a striker following the departure of Andre Gray to Watford this summer.

Burnley manager Sean Dyche has money burning a hole in the pocket after selling Gray for £18 million, and is looking to sign a striker.

According to reports from The Daily Star Sunday (printed edition; press reader), Burnley are eyeing a £4 million move for Preston striker Callum Robinson to replace Gray.

The report claims that Dyche had sent scouts to run the rule over the 22-year-old last weekend.

The striker is also wanted by three Championship clubs – Fulham, Bristol City and Derby County – but the player prefers a move to the Premier League.

The former Aston Villa striker scored 10 Championship goals for Preston last season.

The report adds that Burnley are also considering making a move for Liverpool striker Danny Ings on loan, this summer.

Ings has struggled with injuries in the last two seasons, but Jurgen Klopp could send him out on loan. Burnley are also reportedly interested in Hull City midfielder Sam Clucas.
