Burnley are one of a number of clubs considering a move for Chelsea captain Gary Cahill.
The former England captain is out of contract this summer after seven years at Stamford Bridge and bid farewell to Chelsea fans after their 3-0 win over Watford on Sunday.
Cahill, 33, is keen to prove he can still play a significant role in the Premier League despite being largely ignored by Maurizio Sarri this season.
Speaking to the Telegraph, Cahill was scathing in his assessment of Sarri's man-management at Stamford Bridge.
He said: "If you are not playing a player, any player, for two, three, four games, then you don't have to give a reason for that. But if it gets to eight or nine games, then you have to explain the situation. What's going on?
"But the manager hasn't done that. I see some of the situations with players who won the title with Chelsea, not just myself, and it just hasn't been right.
"It makes it very hard for me to have respect for someone who has not respected what some of us have won with the club."
Fulham agreed a deal with Chelsea to bring Cahill to Craven Cottage in January, but talks with the player reached a stalemate during contract negotiations.
