Report: 'Excellent' Tottenham target is just waiting for a big club to bid for him now

Burnley forward Maxwel Cornet is waiting for big club to bid for him this summer amid Premier League interest.

Give Me Sport report that Cornet is waiting for an offer he finds attractive enough to come his way after the Clarets’ relegation.

It is expected that Cornet will leave Turf Moor after just one season with Burnley and he has a relegation release clause in his contract.

And the report mentions interest from Newcastle, who have of course already signed Nick Pope and Chris Wood from Burnley since the takeover.

Cornet waiting for big club to bid

Tottenham are also reportedly interested in the forward, although it remains to be seen what impact the impending arrival of Richarlison will have on that.

The report says: sources close to the player say he is “waiting for a big enough club to come forward with a proposal”.

Is that Newcastle? They have already lured two players across from Burnley and the prospect of playing in the Championship does not seem to appeal to Cornet.

Cornet was one of Burnley’s bright sparks during their relegation season and Sean Dyche called him ‘excellent‘ back in October.

He showed he belongs in the Premier League and could be an asset to Tottenham or Newcastle next season, as a squad player at the very least.

Now, he is waiting for an offer which takes his fancy and we will see what the future holds as Burnley prepare for life in the Championship.
