Burnley are reportedly setting their sights on securing the services of Olympique Marseille’s skilled midfielder, Pape Gueye. The player, who boasts an impressive record of 103 appearances for the French club and has netted four goals during his tenure, is now the subject of keen interest from the Clarets.
Despite his noteworthy contributions in the past, it’s worth noting that Gueye has seen limited action on the field this year, featuring in only three games.
This, however, hasn’t diminished Burnley’s enthusiasm to make a move for the talented midfielder. The Clarets are said to be preparing a substantial offer of €17 million, signaling their intent to bolster their squad with Gueye’s prowess.
Vincent Kompany faces the crucial task of persuading Gueye to consider a move, especially given the club’s ongoing struggle against relegation this season.
The impending discussions will likely revolve around the potential benefits and opportunities that come with joining Burnley, urging Gueye to become a crucial part of their lineup.

Interestingly, Olympique Marseille appears open to the idea of Gueye’s departure, as the midfielder’s contract is set to enter its final six months. Rather than extending his contract, the French club is reportedly inclined to facilitate a transfer, making it an opportune time for Burnley to make their move.
As negotiations unfold, Burnley will seek to solidify a deal that not only addresses the immediate needs of the club but also adds a valuable asset to their roster.
Gueye’s potential departure from Olympique Marseille could mark the beginning of a new chapter for the midfielder in the English league, providing both parties with fresh opportunities for the rest of the season.
