Burnley plan double raid on Genk

Denmark Under-21 ace Joakim Maehle is a target for Burnley.

The Sun says Burnley are setting up a £7million swoop for Maehle.

Boss Sean Dyche is being pushed to sign the right-back by his scouts, who have sent back glowing reports on the Genk defender.

Maehle, 22, was a standout in Belgian football last season and followed it up with some good shows in the U21 European Championships.

Burnley want a young right-back and Maehle has leapt to the top of their list.

And his Genk team-mate, Ukrainian midfielder Ruslan Malinovskyi, 26, is also catching the Clarets' eye.

Belgium sources claim they could be heading for Turf Moor in a double deal worth £19m.
