Signing March would not improve Burnley's attacking threat

Sean Dyche, Manager of Burnley looks on prior to the Premier League match between Crystal Palace and Burnley at Selhurst Park on January 13, 2018 in London, England.

The Brighton & Hove Albion winger has been linked with a move to Burnley.

Despite having already brought in one winger this month, signing Georges-Kevin N'Koudou on loan from Tottenham Hotspur, it appears that Burnley manager Sean Dyche is looking to add another wide option to his squad.

Brighton & Hove Albion winger Solly March is the subject of interest from Burnley, and a £10 million move could take place, as reported by the Daily Mail.

March has featured prominently in the Premier League this season for Brighton but it is questionable whether the 23-year-old is the right option for Burnley to pursue.

A former England U21 international, March can play on either flank but isn't an especially productive player, as demonstrated by the fact that he has scored just once and provided only one assist in the Premier League so far this season.

March certainly has time on his side in which to improve but at present Burnley require a player who is capable of making them much more dangerous in an attacking sense, and it doesn't appear that the Brighton man is the solution to that problem.

It would be preferable for Burnley to turn their attention to a player who has proven himself in the Premier League, as bringing in March is a gamble that is unlikely to pay off.
