BURNLEY AND ISAAK DAVIES TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY
According to reports, Cardiff City have reportedly rejected the offer by the Clarets to sign Isaak Davies. The report also states that manager Vincent Kompany sees the young striker as part of the future. It is reported that Cardiff City have rejected a £2.5million bid made by Burnley for the striker. The Championship side were impressed by his emergence last season.
However, the reports adds that Cardiff are holding out for a bigger fee for the striker. The young striker has not made a single appearance for the Bluebirds this season due to a knee injury. However, it seems Issak Davies has impressed Burnley last season. So, the Clarets are looking to make a second improved bid for the homegrown striker.
VINCENT KOMPANY NEEDS ATTACKING SIGNINGS THIS SUMMER TRANSFER WINDOW
Burnley have also reportedly made bids for Coventry attacking midfielder Callum O’Hare. However, the bids have been rejected. The report also states they are not pursuing him as he has suffered a recent injury that will keep him out for 2 months. Although, the bids clearly state that Vincent Kompany and staff are looking to sign attacking players as a priority.
They have already lost big attackers such as Dwight Mcneil, Maxwel Cornet, and Wout Weghorst following their relegation. So Kompany has targetted Davies as a long-term replacement as they seek to return to the Premier League. Isaak Davies is also currently facing competition in the City lineup after the club signed Ollie Tanner, Jaden Philogene-Bidace, and Callum O’Dowda.
Davies can offer versatility to Burnley. He can play on both the flanks, lead the line, and can also play as an attacking midfielder. Davies made 30 appearances last season. He scored three goals and provided three assists across all competitions. However, he only started 11 matches last season.
