Burnley winger Dwight McNeil has reportedly caught the eye of Italian Serie A champions Juventus.

This is according to the latest reports emanating from the British media which revealed that Juventus is the latest club to be linked with the young Burnley player.

Dwight McNeil is coming on the back of a sensational breakthrough season for the Clarets.

The 19-year-old was one of the best young players during the just concluded Premier League season.

McNeil caught the eye of Juventus at the Toulon Tournament this summer where he impressed a great deal for the England u-20 team.

The ex-Man Utd Academy player scored once and added two assists in four games at the Toulon Tournament.

Before now, Dwight McNeil had been attracting interest from mainly Premier League clubs.

He contributed three goals and five assists for Burnley in the Premier League as he helped the Clarets survive relegation from the Premier League at the end of the season.

Dwight McNeil has been linked with Everton, Manchester City and the North London duo of Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal.

The young Burnley winger had earlier signed a new contract with the Clarets in January until the end of the 2022/23 season.

He has four years remaining on his Burnley contract with the option of another year.
