Vincent Kompany is reportedly eyeing a new midfielder for the Premier League at Turf Moor. Burnley is interested in securing a midfielder next year, but it’s not just them; other clubs are also eager to bring this player to the Premier League.
Burnley recently signed 15 new players during the summer, with 13 of them arriving on permanent deals and two on loan for the season. Looking ahead to 2024, Vincent Kompany is rumored to be targeting a double transfer for Sunderland’s Jack Clarke and Daniel Ballard. While he has his eyes on the winger and defender, he also seeks to strengthen the midfield.
In Major League Soccer, central midfielder Noel Buck from the New England Revolution has emerged as a potential transfer target for several clubs, including Burnley. He has made a name for himself with 36 senior appearances since his promotion to the first team.
According to The Athletic’s Tom Bogert, Burnley is one of the clubs interested in Noel Buck, along with Arsenal, Man City, and Bundesliga teams. The transfer fee is expected to be in the range of $5-8 million. His current weekly wage at the New England Revolution is £900, making him an affordable option for Burnley.
Noel Buck is a central midfielder known for his contributions at both ends of the pitch. Defensively, he excels in tackling, having won 32 tackles this season, more than any of his teammates. Offensively, he has recorded ten goals and two assists in his career, showcasing his ability in the final third while also protecting the defense.
Buck is a versatile player, having played in various positions on the pitch, making him an attractive prospect for a January transfer. He has been praised by the media as a “sensation.”
