Burnley are interested in signing Queens Park Rangers winger Bright Osayi-Samuel – but face missing out on a deal for the 22-year-old.
Osayi-Samuel has impressed in the Championship this season and is available for around £5million this summer with his contract expiring next year.
A host of clubs are keen on the talented wideman, including Burnley, but the Clarets have yet to make an offer and their indecision means others are likely to steal a march.
There is concrete interest from Belgian outfit Club Brugges, who can offer Champions League football and have had a bid accepted by QPR, but there remains time for Premier League sides to enter the market for a player who has six goals in the second tier this season.
The Clarets have been admirers of Osayi-Samuel and he is understood to tick the boxes for both manager and recruitment team but no bid has been lodged.
Osayi-Samuel has made 40 appearances this season and close to 100 in total for QPR since moving to Loftus Road from the Seasiders in 2017.
Burnley are in need of reinforcements in midfield having seen Aaron Lennon and Jeff Hendrick depart at the end of their contracts last month.
Osai-Samuel would fit the bill as an option out wide while his pricetag and wages would be within Burnley’s remit.
