Burnley Ready To Raid French Side For This £12m Striker: Do They Really Need Him?

Burnley have been quite determined to recover lost ground and Sean Dyche has been very busy picking up his necessary resources for the side. Sometimes you don’t get the required player for your side but Burnley so far had a pretty exuberant transfer window this summer.

They have signed Chris Wood from Leeds United after agreeing on a fee with the Championship club but Dyche has been looking for some other potential names to strengthen his side.

According to reports, they are chasing Abdul Majeed Waris of Lorient.The 25-year-old found the net nine times last season but his goals were not enough as Lorient got demoted to the second division and as expected, following their relegation, a number of clubs have lined up offers for him.

In this season, small clubs have already shattered the transfer records for a number of times and Burnley have seen a major change at Turf Moor. A drastic rise in the Premier League TV rights and Prize money has played a major role in this Premier League revolution and it is going to signal the start of a new trend.

The departure of Andre Gray hit the Clarets hard and with only 10 days left for the transfer window, it remains to be seen how Burnley progresses in this period. Waris had his ups and downs throughout his career but his stint at the French club has been a breakthrough one.

He netted 21 goals for them and his goals scoring prowess has invited offers from a number of clubs. West Ham United and West Bromwich Albion are also reportedly keeping a tab on the player.

Slaven Bilic had a horrific start to the Premier League and despite Chicharito scoring a brace against Southampton, he wants to have adequate choices at his disposal.

Salomon Rondon’s future remains a mystery at West Bromwich Albion. The Venezuelan international hasn’t been at his best and with a very little time left in the transfer window Pulis is hoping to inject some fresh players at the Hawthorns.

Lorient have been demanding in the range of £12m for the player but having already spent their heart out, the Clarets are very reluctant to splash that much. The Ghanaian international has featured 22 times for his country and can play on the flanks too. The arrival of Wood might play down the need of another forward but Burnley might make a last-gasp effort to bring Waris in, to enhance their chances of staying on in the Premier League.
