Burnley are ready to make a bid for Lyon defender Maxwel Cornet this summer.

According to The Sun, the Clarets are in talks to sign the 24-year-old and are ready to bid around £13 million for the Ivory Coast international.

The report claims that Burnley want extra pace, and they have earmarked Cornet as a perfect fit for their squad.

Cornet can play at left-back and further forward, and his versatility would be handy for the Clarets.

German outfit Hertha Berlin are also in the race for the player’s signature and could offer more than Burnley are willing to splurge.

We have already seen several players moving from the Ligue 1 to England this summer, and Cornet could do the same.

Cornet was heavily linked with a move to Leeds United, but they were not willing to meet Lyon’s asking price and dropped their interest.

Bolstering the left-back area was a priority for the Whites this summer, and Leeds did well to sign Junior Firpo from Barcelona earlier this month.

Burnley are also interested in signing Marc Albrighton, but Leicester City do not want to lose him.

The Foxes may offer a new deal to make him stay at the club.
