Burnley have joined Crystal Palace in the race to sign Real Betis midfielder Victor Camarasa, according to Sky sources.

The 25-year-old scored five goals and made four assists while on loan at Cardiff during the 2018/19 campaign.

Burnley have recruited Bailey Peacock-Farrell from Leeds and Jay Rodriguez for £10m from West Brom, plus three other players so far in the transfer window.

Sean Dyche is also interested in bringing Chelsea defender Gary Cahill to Turf Moor, with Clarets centre back James Tarkowski a target for Leicester following an £80m agreement between the Foxes and Manchester United for Harry Maguire.
