Vincent Kompany’s Burnley have received a huge boost in the pursuit of £4million KV Oostende striker Makhtar Gueye Het Nieuwsblad reports that his injury is not as bad as first feared.

When the diagnosis came through, Gueye must have wiped a bead of sweat from his brow before heaving an almighty sigh of relief.

It was revealed on Monday that the 6ft 3in center forward had sprained his ankle in preseason training. With a torn ligament that would have kept him out of action for several months, a potential summer move to Turf Moor would likely have gone up in smoke.

Het Niewsblad point out that the artboys are under pressure to raise money through player sales this summer. And Gueye isn’t just their top scorer – he scored 13 times last season – he’s also their best-selling asset.

Burnley is reportedly ready and willing to raise £4million for a man who caught the eye of Kompany during his time as manager of Belgian giants Anderlecht. The former Manchester City captain reportedly believes Gueye can thrive in a Clarets side that, thanks to the excellence of the likes of Dwight McNeil, Charlie Taylor and company, create most of their scoring chances from wide areas.

Gueye scored four headed goals in 2021/22 alone. And the former St Etienne youngster is likely to replace wanton Wout Weghorst at Turf Moor.

Besiktas president Ahmet Nur Cebi claimed on Monday that a deal to rescue the Netherlands international from the depths of the league should be finalized before the end of the week.

Gueye could join Scott Twine in a revamped attacking partnership at Burnley.
