Maxwel Cornet closing in on Burnley move

L’Équipe report today that Maxwel Cornet’s move from Lyon to Burnley is set to be completed in the next few hours. The two clubs have reached an agreement over a transfer worth €17m.

The 24-year-old Ivorian international had long been reticent over a move to the Premier League side and had prioritised a transfer to Hertha Berlin, the other club interested.

Nevertheless, Lyon have pushed for a high transfer fee with the English team, although Cornet would earn less than his current salary, and talks are now set to be wrapped up.
