Burnley are interested in adding Monaco flyer Samuel Grandsir to Sean Dyche’s squad this summer, according to Get France Football News.
Big-money transfers are likely to be in short supply this summer with the global health crisis still ongoing. And if the likes of Manchester United and Tottenham are likely to keep their powder dry, it is fair to say it is likely to be a quiet few months at Turf Moor too.
Clarets chairman Mike Garlick admitted to Sky Sports not so long ago that Burnley risk losing £50 million if the Premier League season cannot be resumed any time soon.
With the so-called ‘Project Restart’ stuttering and spluttering as the days go by, the top-flight’s perennial underachievers are likely to be hit hard in the pocket.
However, that has not stopped Burnley from being linked with an exciting Ligue 1 attacker. GFFN backs up claims from Telefoot, claiming that 23-year-old Grandsir has admirers at Turf Moor.
The fleet-footed wideman has impressed on loan at Brest, scoring five times in the French top flight, although it appears that he has his heart set on another move this summer – whether permanent or otherwise.
It almost goes without saying that Burnley have a clear advantage over Espanyol, who are bottom of the La Liga table and staring the abyss in the face.
And the former France U21 international is unlikely to cost a bomb either.
