Burnley plan bid for Strasbourg defender Mohamed Simakan

Burnley are moving for Strasbourg defender Mohamed Simakan.

The Sun says Clarets scouts have backed an offer for the 20-year-old Strasbourg star, who has emerged as their favourite defensive target for the next window.

AC Milan tried to buy Simakan in the final days of the summer transfer window, while West Ham considered him as a £9m investment signing.

Manager Sean Dyche had various disagreements with his staff and owner Mike Garlick that disrupted plans.

And now Burnley are ready to bid £15m for Simakan.
