According to the Turkish news outlet Milliyet, Burnley are looking to bring Chilean international Gary Medel to Turf Moor this season. The 31-year-old defender turned midfielder has also been a target for West Ham United for quite some time and might be on his way to the Premier League this January.
The player has been one of the most dependable players in the Besiktas lineup since his arrival at the Turkish Super Lig club in 2017. His presence in front of the back four has helped the Turkish outfit steady their midfield and make a mark in the domestic as well as European stages. He has also earned a number of rave reviews from a number of experts all over Europe for his gritty displays.
The Clarets are currently looking for revival in the Premier League after a poor start to the season, and Sean Dyche could be ready to add a few new faces to the side, especially in the midfield area.
A player like Medel would be a great addition to their midfield, and his experience of playing at the top level would definitely come very handy for Dyche’s squad.
The Chilean midfielder also has prior experience of playing in the Premier League for Cardiff City, which makes him an excellent potential acquisition for the Clarets. The likes of Robby Brady, Steven Defour, Jack Cork, Jeff Hendrick and Ashley Westwood have not been able to replicate their form from the last term, which helped them finish in the seventh place in the Premier League. This has not helped the cause for Dyche’s men and might force the English gaffer to add an experienced campaigner like Medel to their lineup to strengthen things in the middle of the pitch.
Burnley are currently in the 15th place in the league table and might be in for a relegation battle. Their disastrous start to the season has led to this problematic situation, and they could do very well with a player like the 31-year old to hold the midfield together.
In the last term, most of Burnley’s success was due to the stellar performances of their midfield and defence and the inclusion of Medel could help them in their battle for a revival this season. In our opinion, Dyche should look to get this deal done for the former Cardiff City man as soon as possible.
