‘A few clubs for Maxwel Cornet’ – Burnley boss Vincent Kompany
The Ivory Coast international – the Clarets’ top scorer with nine goals last season – was absent from the squad on duty at Montgomery Waters Meadow, with Everton
believed to be keen on a deal for the versatile wide man.
The 25-year-old, signed last summer from Lyon for a fee of around £12.5m, has a release clause of £17.5m, and he would not be surprising to see the Premier League’s interest in the player.
But, when asked about Cornet’s future tonight, Kompany said: “I don’t know it’s close
“It’s no secret that there are a few clubs for him, and a few clubs have made good offers.
“We probably have to prepare for a period after him, and that’s what we are doing.
“I’m not saying Maxwel is gone, he has offers.”
Cornet has been linked with up to 10 Premier League clubs after his first season at this level, including promoted Nottingham Forest, Spurs and Chelsea.
