Tarkowski’s future, exploring the loan market, coming back for Barkley? – Athleticism

We are approaching our favorite time of year.

No, not Christmas. A transfer window.

From the most wonderful time of the year to the most difficult time to buy footballers, with high prices in January and clubs unwilling to let most of their talent go.

Burnley, however, want to be active next month and add reinforcements to Sean Dyche’s squad as the race for Premier League survival turns home.

Is there money to spend in January? —Sean C.

Funds are expected to be available, and The Athletic understands Burnley will also explore the loan market, with a focus on bringing in attacking players.

It is not expected that there will be many signatures, but work and discussions are underway within the technical committee to identify targets that may be available.

The owners of ALK used the money the club had accumulated in the bank under the previous owner to partly finance its takeover a year ago, but also invested this summer with a net outlay of around £12 million.

However, it is still not possible to sign individual players with price tags of £20m, and there is an element of caution – there is no guarantee at this stage which division Burnley will play in. next season.

Has Maxwel Cornet’s impact convinced the club to look further when it comes to new signings? — James T.

When ALK arrived, he made his intentions clear in terms of wanting to expand the club’s recruitment.
