Sources: Burnley will spend £25 million on a striker.
According to sources speaking to Football Insider, Burnley is searching Europe for prospective targets as they look to bolster its attacking options before the transfer deadline on September 1st.

On Friday, August 18, Football Insider reported that Vincent Kompany is looking to bolster his team’s scoring capabilities and that funds have been set aside to make a transaction.

According to the Belgian, his team’s Premier League survival depends on bringing in a talented new forward, and the Clarets are willing to spend £20–25 million on the right player.

Their existing transfer record, set earlier this summer when Basel attacker Zeki Amdouni was brought to Turf Moor for £16.1 million, would be broken by that expenditure.

Following their promotion back to the Premier League as champions, the Clarets have already brought in no fewer than 11 new players, reportedly spending £78 million in all.

Several wingers have also joined, including Wilson Odobert, Luca Koleosho, Nathan Redmond, and Jacob Bruun Larsen, in addition to Amdouni.

Wout Weghorst, who joined Burnley in the Premier League in January of last year, has since moved on a season-long loan to Hoffenheim.

Despite the Clarets’ efforts to permanently sign Nathan Tella, who led Southampton in scoring last season, Tella is still a Saint.

Tella scored 19 goals overall while playing for Burnley, who won the league and were relegated to the Premier League.

Burnley played Man City, the reigning champions of the Premier League, in their opening matchback, but were defeated 3-0 by Pep Guardiola’s team last Friday (August 11).

The Clarets’ next game is on August 27 against Aston Villa.
