Burnley should look to the Championship and give this striker his chance in the Premier League

Burnley ensured Premier League survival last season under Sean Dyche and were good value for it in the main, with their home form proving key for the Clarets. 

In what has been a quiet summer so far, Burnley fans will be waiting with bated breath over the futures of players like Michael Keane and Andre Gray, and it remains to be seen if either of those two stars will be moved on for big money.

However, the fans here in the Tavern remain optimistic of Premier League survival once again, and this week has seen our landlord getting stuck into some pretty serious conversations about who the Clarets could look to bring in this summer.

One player who has been mentioned as someone who might deserve their chance in the top flight is Nottingham Forest striker Britt Assombalonga, who has plied his trade in the Championship with aplomb the last few years.

Despite serious injury, Assombalonga remains one of the most lethal strikers in the Championship, and he will no doubt be courted by many a club looking to add some serious firepower to their ranks over the summer.

The former Peterborough man possesses pace and power, and teamed with his ability to finish his chances when they come along, it makes him someone who could easily adapt to the top flight given the chance.

Forest will not want to lose him, but Assombalonga at Burnley could be an excellent move for the player, and give him the platform to really put himself in the limelight.
