Burnley line up £10m transfer raid on Nottingham Forest defender Joe Worrall with Liverpool hero Nat Phillips also eyed

May 30, 2021

BURNLEY plan to launch a £10million bid for Nottingham Forest centre-back Joe Worrall.

Boss Sean Dyche has been given cash from the sale of Ben Gibson and wants long-term target Worrall to boost his squad.

The defender is keen to move to the Premier League and Nottingham Forest may sell at the right price.

Norwich and West Ham have also inquired about him.

Burnley are looking for two centre-backs and have tried again for Stoke’s Nathan Collins.

But the Potters want a big fee and are waiting on Manchester United, Arsenal and Crystal Palace to come in for the Irishman.

The Clarets have also made an inquiry for Liverpool’s unexpected hero Nat Phillips, who is fancied by Newcastle, and have a long-standing interest in Dael Fry at Middlesbrough.

Meanwhile, Burnley winger Dwight McNeil could be set to depart Turf Moor this summer.

The English youngster has been linked with a move to fellow Premier League side Aston Villa in the transfer window.

McNeil is one of Villa's main targets with the England Under-21 talent attracting interest after an impressive campaign.

The 21-year-old scored twice and provided five assists last season for Burnley and could be enticed into a new challenge.

McNeil operates on the left wing and his pace and flair would provide another attacking outlet for Dean Smith's side.
