Reported Aston Villa transfer target Neal Maupay is wanted by Burnley, according to the Daily Mail.
Maupay enjoyed an exceptional 2018/19 season in the Championship with Brentford, scoring 28 goals in 49 appearances.
His performances have alerted a number of Premier League clubs, with Villa one of those in the hunt.
Dean Smith is looking to add firepower to his squad ahead of their return to the top flight, especially if they don’t manage to retain the services of Tammy Abraham.
A £9million bid is thought to have been rejected, with Brentford holding out for £20million.
Burnley are believed to be “stepping up” their interest in the 22-year-old, and are expected to “start the bidding” at £15million.
Whether or not Villa decide to up their offer remains to be seen, but losing out on Maupay would be a blow.
Although there is no guarantee he would take his Championship form to the Premier League, he is a young player full of potential.
2019/20 Premier League relegation odds
Sheffield United - 4/6
Sheffield United are back in the Premier League, but could they go straight back down?
They are the favourites to be relegated, despite Chris Wilder doing a superb job at Bramall Lane.
Norwich City - 5/6
Norwich City won the Championship title in 2018/19, excelling under Daniel Farke.
They are expected to struggle in the Premier League, however, remaining odds-on for the drop.
Aston Villa - 6/4
Despite finishing lower than Sheffield United and Norwich in the Championship, Aston Villa are given the biggest chance of survival.
That being said, they are still among the three favourites for relegation.
Burnley - 7/4
After a tough season last time around, Burnley will be hoping to rise up the Premier League table.
They are being tipped to be in another relegation scrap, however, as Sean Dyche attempts to steer his team clear of safety.
Brighton - 2/1
Graham Potter is now in charge at Brighton, which is an intriguing appointment.
The Seagulls will likely find themselves in the relegation fight again, bot Potter will aim to take them nearer to mid table.
