South Coast club Bournemouth will have to fend off the interest of Premier League clubs for Burnley goalkeeper Tom Heaton.
The 33-year-old has emerged as one of the most sought-after goalkeepers in English football on the back of the breakdown in his contract talks with the Clarets.
Bournemouth have to face other Premier League clubs like Aston Villa and Watford who are also interested in the former Manchester United goalkeeper.
Tom Heaton has one year left on his Burnley contract and the Clarets will have to decide on what to do with him in the event that the England international shot stopper doesn’t sign a new deal.
Burnley have to either sell him for a sizeable transfer fee or let him leave the club for nothing next summer.
Tom Heaton returned to the Burnley starting XI in the middle of the season after recovering from a long-term injury.
His return coincided with an upturn in form for the Clarets who had been struggling in the relegation zone on the Premier League table.
In the end, Burnley steered clear of the relegation zone at the end of the season buoyed by the form of Tom Heaton who has also returned to the Three Lions of England after the aforementioned injury.
Manchester United Should Plot Double Swoop To Boost Attack
According to the Manchester Evening News (MEN), fallen Premier League giants Manchester United should plot a double transfer swoop to revive their attack during the second half of the season.
It was revealed that the Bournemouth duo of Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser could boost the Manchester United attack this season.
Callum Wilson is a reported target for the Red Devils ahead of the January transfer window, and Ryan Fraser has been linked with Manchester United in the past.
The Manchester United attack has come under a lot of struggles this term after a return of just nine goals in eight Premier League games.
Four of those nine goals came during the first league game of the season at home to top four rivals Chelsea.
Manchester United beat Chelsea 4-0 to start the season on a winning note but they have recorded just one league victory since that Chelsea game at Old Trafford.
The Manchester United attack was depleted in the summer with the exits of Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez to Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan.
Lukaku was sold to the Italians for a transfer fee of around 74 million pounds, while Alexis Sanchez joined them on loan until next summer.
Manchester United have relied on young attackers like Mason Greenwood and Tahiti Chong rather than sign replacements for Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez.
United To Sign Two Stars As Juventus Striker Tops Wishlist
Manchester United obviously need to add more fireworks to their attacking department following their underwhelming start to the season.
Solskjaer, who is under pressure to deliver, is now making move to add more threats to his team’s attacking prowess as he is linked with two in-form strikers.
Juventus experienced centre-forward Mario Mandzukic was said to be heading to Old Trafford during the summer window but the Red Devils failed in their last-minute bid for his signature.
Top Qatari clubs approached the player in the summer but the Croatian star turned down the chance to depart the Turin side as he reportedly wants a switch to Old Trafford.
Maurizio Sarri won’t find it difficult to let go of the striker in January considering the quality of strikers at his disposal.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Gonzalo Higuain are very much available for selection, hence, Juventus won’t think twice before parting ways with Mandzukic who has just 18 months left in his contract.
According to Sky Sports, the Red Devils are also in the race to sign Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson who is enjoying a brilliant start to the season.
The Cherries’ centre-forward has scored five goals in seven matches and his current form has earned him a call-up to Gareth Southgate’s 25-man squad ahead of their Euro 2020 qualifiers against Czech Republic and Bulgaria.
