Another exciting English youngster is looking to break his way into the Premier League.
Burnley are following suit of other Premier League clubs by displaying an interest in a promising young English talent. A luxury that will fetch a sweet penny after being proven at a Premier League standard. It is Bolton Wanderers’ 20 year-old full-back Harry Brockbank who is garnering attention from other clubs amid Bolton’s relegation into League One.
Sean Dyche’s Burnley squad had a rough 2018/19 season, narrowly escaping relegation by six points. With it mind that Sean Dyche needs to massively improve his Burnley squad. It may seem a strange pursuit to go after Bolton’s Harry Brockbank, as he only started three games towards the end of Bolton’s very troublesome season.
However, many clubs including Sunderland, Brentford and Ipswich are keen on Harry Brockbank, meaning that he must offer something that over clubs are keen on bringing in. In Burnley’s case, Harry Brockbank could gain Premier League experience as an understudy to the incredibly experienced Phil Bardsley, who turns 34 this summer.
Sean Dyche’s interest in the youngster demonstrates an interest in securing a solid future for the side. We could see Brockbank gain interest from big clubs in years to come, potentially fetching a similar price to the likes of Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Harry Maguire and other English Premier League talents.
