Burnley have had a £3m offer for forward Jonathan Walters rejected by Premier League rivals Stoke City, according to a report.
Burnley are looking to strengthen their squad as they prepare for a second-successive campaign of top-flight football, having avoided the drop with relative ease last term.
It is claimed by the Daily Mail that Walters has attracted the eye of Burnley boss Sean Dyche, but his initial bid fell short of the Potters’ valuation.
Jonathan Walters may be keen to force a move away, however, with the Republic of Ireland international being restricted to 13 top-flight starts last season under Mark Hughes.
Burnley, who finished four points below Stoke in 2016-17, already have a number of Irishmen in their ranks, including Jeff Hendrick, Robbie Brady, Kevin Long and Stephen Ward.
