Burnley appear to be leading Crystal Palace and Middlesbrough in the £15 million race for Everton's Yannick Bolasie.
The newspaper adds that while Crystal Palace are keen on a return for the player they sold to Everton for £25 million three years ago, the Eagles do not value Bolasie at that price - which Middlesbrough also cannot match.
And it is claimed that Burnley's bid has derailed Palace's chances of taking him on loan.
According to the Sun, Bolasie is set to receive the go-ahead to leave Everton, while Burnley are confident of agreeing personal terms.
The 29-year-old, whose Everton place is under threat from Brazilians Richarlison and Bernard, will reunite with the former Toffees winger Aaron Lennon if he moves to Turf Moor.
Should Crystal Palace and Middlesbrough concede defeat over Bolasie?
