Burnley boss Vincent Kompany is exploring a deal for 22-year-old Standard Liege striker Jackson Muleka, Express Sport understands.
The Democratic Republic of the Congo forward netted 12 times in 14 outings within the second half of last season while on loan Kasimpasa within the Turkish Super Lig.
Muleka is considered one of the names in contention to switch January flop Wout Weghorst, who is predicted to affix Besiktas on loan. In addition they hold an interest in Muleka and Reading forward Lucas Joao.
Yet the Clarets usually are not the one team in contention for Muleka’s signature with several German, Belgian and Turkish clubs also monitoring his situation.
Some reports suggest Burnley have already made a proposal for Muleka, although Express Sport has been unable to firm that information up.
