Burnley approach Arsenal for Rob Holding

Burnley are eyeing Arsenal defender Rob Holding.

The Daily Mail says Burnley have enquired about Arsenal's England under-21 defender Holding and hope to sign him on loan should Arsene Wenger land Jonny Evans from West Brom.

Clarets boss Sean Dyche is keen to strengthen his defensive options after a run of eight matches without a win and believes 22-year-old Holding, who began his career in the north-west at Bolton, would benefit from regular first-team games having started just five Premier League matches this season.

Arsenal would need to sign £20million target Evans before they would allow Holding to go with Wenger's men in the Carabao Cup Final and knockout stages of the Europa League.
