Burnley are lining up a move for Leeds United star Mateusz Klich, according to The Sun. The Clarets want three new signings this summer, including Genk duo Joakim Maehle and Ruslan Malinovskyi.
The third player on Burnley’s radar is Klich. Leeds will be eager to keep Klich but the lure of the Premier League could tempt him to move to Burnley.
Klich has enjoyed a resurrection at Leeds under Marcelo Bielsa. In the 2017/18 season, Klich was sent out on loan to FC Utrecht but Bielsa gave him a chance.
The Poland international quickly became a hit with the Leeds fans for his dominant central midfield performances. He played 50 games last season, scoring 10 goals.
This has prompted Burnley to take a look at the 29-year-old. Sean Dyche wants to boost his squad after a lower-half finish last season. But Burnley are undecided on how much to pay for him.
Now or never for Klich?
At the age of 29, Klich might not get a better opportunity to play Premier League football. If he stays at Leeds, he will be set for another promotion push but there are no guarantees over their future.
If he moves to Burnley, he will get his chance in the English top-flight. But he might feel like he owes Bielsa some loyalty after he was brought back from the cold for Leeds.
