AC Milan Set to Sign a New £96 Million one-Year Deal With…

One year on, with Burnley heading back to the Championship with a whimper, the 20-year-old attacker could be forgiven for feeling he dodged a bullet.

The Clarets’ transfer market activity during the summer of 2023, after all, may go down as a perfect example of how not to prepare for life in the Premier League.

While Burnley were powerless to prevent the departures of former loan stars Ian Maatsen and Nathan Tella – two players who ended the following season with a European final – most of the players they did sign flopped pretty badly.

Arguably only Dara O’Shea, Sander Berge, Wilson Odobert and Lucas Koleosho could be considered a success, with James Trafford, Zeki Amdouni, Aaron Ramsey and particularly the £16 million Mike Tresor proving to be expensive disappointments during a summer reminiscent of Fulham’s disastrous, £100 million-plus recruitment drive of 2018.
