Burnley target striker Wells
English Championship side Burnley are reportedly planning a £500,000 summer move for Bradford City striker Nahki Wells.
The 22-year-old’s impressive performances for the Bantams this season have caught the eye of Burnley manager Sean Dyche, according to the Lancashire Evening Telegraph.
Wells, who has scored 22 goals in all competitions this campaign, was a key figure in his side’s stunning run to the League Cup final, which ended in defeat to Premier League outfit Swansea.
It is believed that the Clarets have identified Wells as the ideal replacement for leading goalscorer Charlie Austin, who is widely expected to depart Turf Moor before the new campaign.
Bermuda’s Wells, who signed a contract until June 2015 in September last year, scored from the penalty spot in Bradford’s 3-2 defeat to Burton Albion in the first leg of the League Two play-offs on Thursday.
Bradford visit Albion for the second leg on Sunday.
