Burnley are said to be considering a move for Stoke City forward Tyrese Campbell in the January transfer window according to The Sunday Mirror (25 October, page 66).
It is claimed that Burnley boss Sean Dyche sees Campbell as ‘the ideal recruit’ as he looks to bolster his attacking options in the New Year.
Campbell scored 13 goals in 39 appearances for Stoke City last season, as Michael O’Neill’s side finished 15th in the Championship table.
The forward has started this year’s campaign brightly as well, and scored once, whilst also assisting twice in a recent 3-2 win over promotion-chasing Brentford at the weekend.
Stoke are currently sat eighth in the Championship, and will surely be looking to keep hold of Campbell for as long as possible, as they look to challenge for a top-six finish.
A move to Turf Moor could tempt the forward though, with the prospect of Premier League football being offered by Burnley ahead of the January transfer window.
Campbell and his Stoke City team-mates are set to return to action in midweek, when they take on Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium, in what is certain to be a tough test for the Potters.

I think he’s destined for a move to the Premier League.
Campbell really impressed me last season with Stoke City, and I was surprised that the Potters were able to fend of interest in his services during the summer transfer window.
He showed his class in the recent win over Brentford, and I’m not surprised in the slightest to see that he’s wanted by a Premier League club ahead of the New Year.
He’s more than good enough to be playing his football in the top-flight, and I think Stoke will struggle to keep hold of him.
