GiveMeSport have claimed that Burnely winger Maxwel Cornet, who has been linked with a move to Tottenham this summer is keen to leave Turf Moor.

Cornet enjoyed an impressive first season in English football after arriving at Burnley from Lyon last summer, scoring nine goals in the Premier League (Transfermarkt).

However, his efforts were not enough to help the Clarets to preserve their Premier League status as their relegation was confirmed on the final day of the season.

The Daily Mirror reported back in May that Antonio Conte had identified the Ivory Coast international as a player who could bolster his attacking options this summer.

The Telegraph subsequently claimed Burnley’s relegation from the top-flight triggers a clause that would allow the winger to leave for £17.5m this summer, with West Ham United and Everton also said to have their eye on the winger.

However, so far none of the aforementioned clubs seem to have pushed ahead with a move for the 25-year-old.

GiveMeSport have now revealed that Cornet is keen to seal a move away from Burnley before the transfer window closes.

The report states that the winger is now ‘waiting for a big enough club’ to come forward with a proposal. 

Spurs Web Opinion

Tottenham’s impending signing of Richrlison likely rules out a move for any other attacking player this summer. It is possible that Conte was eyeing Cornet as an option for the left wing-back role but we are now well stacked in that position as well with Perisic and Sessegnon.
