Burnley are believed to be one of the clubs considering a summer approach for Fortuna Dusseldorf’s Benito Raman. The 24-year-old was part of the Fortuna side that won promotion last season and despite not being a regular this term, the striker has still netted 10 times, including four in his last five.

With Bundesliga safety all but guaranteed, the Flingeraner are already looking to the summer and director Lutz Pfannenstiel recently revealed that he was aware of the interest in Raman. A fee of around 15m euros would reportedly be enough to prise him away from the Merkur Spiel-Arena and such a price means competition for his signature is likely to be high.
Sources in Germany say scouts from Burnley have been regulars at Dusseldorf’s games with a view to bringing the Belgian to Lancashire. The Ghent-born star recently admitted he wants to play in the Premier League and the pieces seem to be falling into place for the Clarets.
