Burnley supporters in the Transfer Tavern are still teeming with joy having maintained their status as a Premier League team last season.
Sean Dyche did an extraordinary job last season to ensure that Burnley remained in England’s top-flight, nonetheless their success was tainted by one alarming factor, their inability to score goals.
Only the relegated Sunderland, Middlesbrough and Hull City managed to score fewer goals than Burnley.
In 38 league games, the Clarets only managed to score a total of 39 goals – that’s a disappointing ratio of a goal per game.
If Dyche is to ensure Burnley’s status as a Premier League club this season, they must improve on their total.
Our landlord has identified one player that Burnley should sign whatever the price this transfer window.
Chris Wood scored 30 goals in all competitions for Leeds United, that included 27 Championship goals as the Whites narrowly missed out on a play-off spot.
The 25-year-old’s goal involvement was superb last season, he contributed to 31 league goals, providing four assists.
The New Zealand striker has testified his status as a proficient goal scorer, and he would be the perfect fit for Sean Dyche’s team.
Leicester’s former striker is highly recognised for his terrific finishing ability and ruthless nature in front of goal, if he’s presented with an opportunity he regularly takes it.
Also, his build-up play is equally impressive, he retains possession well and exhibits an ability to bring teammates into play.
Our landlord believes without hesitation that Wood’s signing would help thwart Burnley’s attacking woes.
