Burnley are set to launch a pursuit for Everton winger Aaron Lennon in January, according to a report.
Sun reporter Alan Nixon claimed on his personal Twitter account on Sunday that Burnley are set to try “again” to sign Lennon, 30, in the upcoming transfer window.
BBC reporter David Ornsetin has claimed on his personal Twitter account is August that senior player Lennon could have sealed a deadline day switch to Turf Moor despite Everton blocking a move earlier in the window.
And now it appears that the high-flying Premier League side are prepared to try again for the 21-times England international.
Burnley have been a surprise package this season with Sean Dyche leading his side up to seventh in the table and a spot that could potentially secure them Europa League football next term.
Lennon is no stranger to mixing it among the big boys in the Premier League and was once a key player at Tottenham.
This season the ex-Leeds United flyer has made 17 appearances across all competitions.
Football Insider verdict
Lennon’s time at Goodison Park appeared to have been over in the summer but he has recently come back into the Everton first-team and is playing regularly under Sam Allardcye. It remains to be seen whether or not Allardyce has plans to keep hold of the former Spurs and Leeds winger, who is yet to show any real signs that he is irreplaceable. Lennon isn’t scoring and he isn’t supplying assists and as a wide-man in an Allardyce team, you have to be showing more end product. Burnley could have a big January on the cards due to their high standing in the league, however they are not as financially-endowed as a lot of other sides in the division.
