Burnley are in advanced talks over a deal for Dinamo Zagreb midfielder Mislav Orsic, as the Premier League’s bottom side push hard for new signings this week.
Orsic, who has previously been linked with a move to Arsenal, is a name familiar to English fans after he scored a hat-trick against Tottenham to knock them out of the Europa League last season.
The 29-year-old also scored the winner in Dinamo Zagreb’s Europa League win at West Ham last month.
Orsic has played 29 times in all competitions for Dinamo Zagreb this season and has scored eight goals.
The Croatia international also played at Euro 2020 last summer and scored in Croatia’s 5-3 last-16 defeat to Spain.
Burnley, who are four points adrift of safety, are interested in Orsic as they want to sign a midfielder and a striker this January.
The Clarets are looking to sign a replacement for Chris Wood, who joined Newcastle this month for £25m.
