Burnley and manager Vincent Kompany are allegedly interested in signing a high-profile free agent.

Burnley signed who this summer?
The Clarets enjoyed another incredibly profitable transfer window ahead of their return to the Premier League, bringing in a record 15 players. However, the club has struggled to make an immediate impact in the top division, having lost all three of their games so far.

Burnley’s Premier League games have all been played at Turf Moor, with Manchester City, Aston Villa, and Tottenham all scoring three or more goals and winning.

As a result, the Clarets are bottom of the table, while fellow recently promoted side Luton Town have also failed to pick up a point in their opening three games.

With so many new players, Kompany may need some time to get the most out of his team, but it appears that those in charge at Turf Moor are still hunting for free-agent signings.

Everton, Burnley 'interested' in move for free agent Jesse Lingard; West  Ham remain favourites

Who is interested in signing Jesse Lingard?
Jesse Lingard, according to 90min, is a sought-after player who has had offers from teams in Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and the United States of America.

He is presently training with West Ham, who are considering providing him a short-term contract, while Burnley and Everton are also believed to be interested in the offensive midfielder. According to the rumor, if Lingard is to stay in England, he will join the Hammers.

Lingard, who has previously scored two goals against Burnley, would bring plenty of Premier League experience to Turf Moor, having played in the tournament for Manchester United, West Ham United, and Nottingham Forest.

The Englishman, who can play in a variety of offensive positions, was lauded as “top-class” by former Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and is 30 years old, so you’d expect the player to have a number of years left at the top level.

However, a move to West Ham appears to be on the cards, with David Moyes recently stating:

“He’s in really good shape – much better shape than he was when he first came in.” Jesse joined us two years ago and I believe he scored nine goals in 15 games, which was probably the difference between us going into Europe for the first time. I want to give him every chance to get back into shape and see how he does.”

However, if a move to the London Stadium falls through, Burnley may be able to make a bid, therefore his future is one to watch.
