According to a report from The Sun, Burnley are plotting January moves for Everton winger Aaron Lennon and Nottingham Forest centre-back Joe Worrall, though they may have to pay £12 million for the latter.

It has been a sensational start to the season for Sean Dyche's men. The Clarets sit seventh in the top flight currently, having already secured 34 points in just 21 games - they only need six more from their remaining 17 games to match their tally from last season.

It appears that they are not prepared to rest on their laurels however, with The Sun suggesting that they are looking to be busy during the January transfer window, with moves for Lennon and Worrall on their wishlist.

The Sun reports that Burnley are plotting a £1.5 million bid for Lennon. The 30-year-old has made 13 Premier League appearances this season, but is out of contract at the end of the campaign, and the Clarets hope that the seven-figure offer will be enough to get a deal across the line.

They may find it more difficult to get a move for the Forest man across the line. The youngster - who has featured in 24 of their 25 Championship games this term - is rated at £12 million by the City Ground outfit, according to The Sun, so that would undoubtedly represent a major statement intent from Dyche's men if they met those demands.

But with Worrall just 20, and with Dyche proving time and time again since arriving at Turf Moor that he can help players reach another level, it may not be too great a surprise if Burnley remain determined to get the England under-21 international through the door, while also pulling off a move for Lennon.
