Club Brugge’s Andreas Skov Olsen has ended up on Burnley’s radar.

That’s according to journalist Sacha Tavolieri, who states the 23-year-old is seen as an ‘opportunity for Burnley’ in this window.

He further adds the Clarets took information about Skov Olsen, without specifying if they contacted his camp, the Jupiler Pro League side or both.

Tavolieri claims the winger can leave Club Brugge if there’s an offer between €13m and €18m.

For now, the English club have the player’s name on their list. They haven’t made a proposal for the Denmark international so far.

If Skov Olsen were to end up at Turf Moor next season, the journalist says he could have an ‘impact’ on the wings under Vincent Kompany’s orders.

Luckily for Burnley, the Dane admitted on Thursday that he’s keen on making a switch to the Premier League, either in the current window or in the future.

“At some point I would like to try the Premier League, before my career ends one day. Whether it will be now, I don’t know. Time will tell. I am also open to other choices,” he said.

With Club Brugge reportedly stating their demands, it now remains to be seen if Burnley will make an offer for Skov Olsen, who managed nine goals and seven assists from 30 games last season.

Liverpool on alert for obscure 17-goal winger target after international breakthrough amid Aston Villa, Burnley battle

Japanese attacking midfielder Keito Nakamura has caught the attention of Liverpool, as well as Aston Villa and Burnley, according to a report.

Nakamura currently plays for LASK in Austria, for whom he scored 17 goals from 36 appearances this season. His form recently earned him his senior debut for Japan. On Thursday, he scored on his second cap.

Now, according to the Daily Mail, interest in Nakamura is growing. The report claims Liverpool are one of the biggest clubs keeping tabs on the 22-year-old.

Nakamura played almost exclusively as a left winger this season, which is a position Liverpool already have Luis Diaz, Cody Gakpo and Diogo Jota in.

But the increasing competition for his services might encourage them to firm up their own interest. Other than Liverpool, Nakamura is said to be of interest to Aston Villa and Burnley in the Premier League.

Further afield, other suitors supposedly include Borussia Dortmund, Borussia Monchengladbach, Eintracht Frankfurt, Lille, Lyon, Reims and Feyenoord.

Therefore, Nakamura could choose England, Germany, France or the Netherlands as the country in which to take the next step of his career.

He originally began his career in his homeland with Gamba Osaka. A loan spell with FC Twente in the Eredivisie gave him his first taste of European football before a similar spell with Sint-Truiden in Belgium.

Juniors OO then took him to Austria on a temporary basis before he stayed in that league permanently with LASK. The club from Linz finished third in the Austrian Bundesliga this season, which was Nakamura’s second with the club.

As such, they have qualified for the Europa League play-off round for next season. Whether Nakamura will still be with them for that campaign, despite being under contract until 2025, is now up for question.

Liverpool move might be too soon for Nakamura
The report does not specify how much it might cost for Liverpool or any of the other suitors to sign Nakamura this summer. Given the amount of interest he is generating despite playing in a more obscure league, LASK might be hoping to benefit from a bidding war.

In truth, a move to Liverpool might be too soon for Nakamura this summer. He has been building up his reputation with regular gametime for LASK, which Liverpool might not be able to match.

But his potential is developing, so he might be able to strive for higher levels in years to come.

This summer, he should consider another intermediate step, such as Villa – who will be in the Europa Conference League next season – or newly promoted Burnley.

He also might have a chance of developing on the continent with one of his other seven admirers.

Whatever happens this summer, Nakamura might be one to keep an eye on in years to come.
