Burnley would be scoring for fun again if they signed Mbwana Samatta on deadline day

Sean Dyche could be set to add another attacker to his ranks on deadline day with Sam Vokes interesting Stoke.

The Potters have registered (as per John Percy of the Telegraph) an interest in Vokes who has made the majority of his appearances from the substitute’s bench so far this season. Stoke want to bring the Welshman to the Championship and will offer Peter Crouch as part of the deal.

With Burnley still at the wrong end of the table, Crouch would be an awful addition to the squad and Dyche should set his sights much higher. The deadline is fast approaching and not many quality options are available. However, the Burnley boss could find success by scouring the European market.

One man who would be a great signing is Genk forward – Mbwana Samatta. Valued at £5.85m by Transfermarkt, the 26-year-old has been scoring for fun in the Belgium Pro League since joining his current employers in 2016. The Tanzania international has earned a reputation as one of the finest finishers in the division and deserves the chance to display his talents at a better level.

Samatta has netted 25 goals in 33 appearances so far this season and would add a quality option to the Burnley forward line. With frightening pace and terrific dribbling skills, his arrival would give Dyche a completely different dynamic in the final third. Samatta is versatile and could easily be moulded into a winger to accommodate the likes of Chris Wood.

Potentially available at a great price, this is a move that the Clarets should seriously be considered.
