Burnley approach Lyon for Maxwell Cornet, Berlin remains the player’s preference

According to L’Équipe, English Premier League club Burnley have, in recent days, contacted Lyon over a possible move for Ivorian left sided player Maxwell Cornet.

The sports daily also report that Bundesliga outfit Hertha Berlin are also interested with Lyon hoping to receive around €13m for the player. Burnley, however, is not the player’s preferred destination with the German capital his favoured option, Hertha having followed the player for several months.

Lyon’s left-back position remains in some flux with promising full-back Melvin Bard (20) surprisingly joining OGC Nice this summer, Youssouf Koné (25) returning from underwhelming loans in Turkey and Spain and OL signing 27-year-old left-back Henrique Silva from Vasco de Gama on a free transfer.
