BURNLEY are struggling to close a deal for RB Leipzig winger Ademola Lookman as boss Sean Dyche tries to bring in new faces.
The Clarets will pay a loan fee and wages to sign Lookman, 23, who was on loan at Fulham last season.
But the player is unsure about the move and weighing up his options.
Last week, SunSport revealed that Crystal Palace are keeping tabs on Lookman as they look to secure a season-long loan deal.
New Crystal Palace boss Patrick Vieira has been given funds to spend this summer following Roy Hodgson's departure.
The former Arsenal and France icon has looked to upgrade his defence with the additions of Marc Guehi and Joachim Anderson – with the latter playing alongside Lookman at Fulham last term.
As a result, Dyche may now try to meet Lyon’s £15million valuation of Maxwel Cornet instead.
Cornet has played 251 times for the Ligue 1 side since arriving from Metz in 2015.
And he has impressed during his time with the club, netting 51 times and assisting 29 more.

Another option is former Burnley winger Aaron Lennon, who has been training at Turf Moor and could yet get an offer to stay for the season.
Meanwhile, Vieira's Palace could look to raid Arsenal for winger Reiss Nelson.
Alongside Lookman, Nelson is at the top of the Eagles’ list for a new wide man and Gunners icon Vieira wants a loan deal.
