Burnley are interested in making a summer move for Oxford United centre-back Luke McNally, as per a Patreon report from journalist Alan Nixon.
The Clarets are seemingly in need of central defensive reinforcements, with James Tarkowski set to imminently depart, whilst Ben Mee could also head for pastures new this summer.
Tottenham Hotspur have also been interested in a move for the McNally in the build-up to the summer, with the Premier League giants tabling a seven-figure bid for the 22-year-old back in March.
The Clarets, now under the stewardship of Vincent Kompany, will be striving for an immediate return to the Premier League during the 2022/23 campaign, with McNally certainly representing someone who can grow with the ambitions of the club.
