Burnley have been linked with a move for RB Leipzig forward Ademola Lookman.
The 23-year-old spent last season on loan with Fulham as the Cottagers were relegated from the Premier League.
And reports suggest he is set to depart on loan again this term with the Clarets credited with an interest.

According to The Sun, Sean Dyche's side and Watford have joined Crystal Palace in targeting the former Everton man.
But the report states Lookman's £50,000 a week wages and the £3.5m loan fee the Bundesliga side are demanding, could price the Clarets out of the deal.
Dyche has rarely utilised the loan market during his Turf tenure with those temporary arrivals that do come in often struggling for game time.
The Clarets chief spoke last season of his desire to bring in permanent acquisitions rather than loanees, saying: "My considered view of loans is not that I am against them, we have had loan players.
"But we try and get business done when people are actually part of you.
"I have been on loan as a player, and it is strange. It doesn't mean that you are not giving everything because a lot of loans work and some have been fantastic for clubs.

"But if you sign a player, they're invested in you - the culture, the club, the fans, everything about it. When you're on loan it's a slightly different thing.
"The appropriate loan, the right loan at any given time, I'd certainly look at, but I always think you get your business done first, the main players, because you could take on a loan and get a chance on a player you wanted in the first place who could be part of you and the collective and if you've got the loan player, he's filled that slot.
"I'm not at a club where if you fill a slot they allow you to fill it twice. That's more of a business view of it.
"Ideally, get your main business done first, signing players who are actually part of your group and add through loans if and when possible or appropriate."
Lookman would certainly add to the Clarets squad given Dyche's limited options out wide.
The wideman is at home across the frontline and offers a versatility that would appeal to the Burnley boss.
Lookman, who came through the ranks at Charlton, joined Leipzig for £22.5million from Everton but has made just on league start in two years, spending last season with Fulham.
