Burnley has set its sights on securing the services of Arsenal midfielder Albert Sambi Lokonga.

Despite an impressive loan spell at Crystal Palace, Lokonga appears destined to depart Arsenal during the upcoming summer transfer window.

Having received limited playing time since his loan move to Palace in January, it has become apparent that Lokonga has no long-term future at Arsenal. As a result, the midfielder must seek either a loan move or a permanent transfer to continue his career elsewhere.
