Burnley will demand a huge £40million for Dwight McNeil in the January transfer window, according to reports.

The 22-year-old winger has several Premier League suitors, with the likes of Everton, Crystal Palace and Aston Villa all vying after his signature.

However, the Clarets’ asking price for the England U21 international could be too steep for the interested parties.

According to The Sun, Burnley would be happy to sell the 22-year-old winger this month. However, they will only let McNeil go if the price is right. 

Everton, Crystal Palace and Aston Villa are expected to come in with offers around £20m but the Clarets will reject anything below the £40m mark. 

Therefore, the Toffees would have to raise funds to be in with a chance of landing McNeil, while Crystal Palace may look to sell Wilfried Zaha to stump up the funds.

Additionally, Villa would have to make room for McNeil by clearing out some of their current players. 

Villa were linked with McNeil in the summer but decided to buy Leon Bailey from Bayer Leverkusen as a replacement for outgoing Jack Grealish. 

Therefore, they will be eager to get their hands on the England U21 talent during the January transfer window instead.   

Nevertheless, a few questions marks will be raised over McNeil’s price tag given his drop in form this season. 

Crystal Palace would have to sell Wilfried Zaha to be able to afford McNeil later this month

He is yet to score for Sean Dyche’s side in the 2021-2022 season and has recorded just one assist. 

It is newcomer Maxwel Cornet that has stolen the show for the Clarets so far this term. 

Therefore, Burnley may look to cash in on the youngster while he is still so highly sought after.
