Two Premier League Clubs are Showing Keen Interest in the 22-year-old Sunderland Winger with Early Competing Bids Ahead of January…

Brentford and Burnley have both expressed their interest in acquiring the services of Sunderland winger Jack Clarke.

Both Premier League clubs are preparing bids for the 22-year-old Clarke, following unsuccessful attempts to sign him in the summer.

Burnley’s recruitment team is set to renew their pursuit of the player in the upcoming transfer window to bolster their squad and aid Vincent Kompany’s efforts to secure top-flight survival.

Although Sunderland rejected Burnley’s final offer of approximately £13 million in August, the Clarets are expected to improve their bid in the new year due to their ongoing struggle in the relegation zone.

However, they face stiff competition from Brentford, where manager Thomas Frank is eager to strengthen the team’s attacking options in January.

Brentford is planning to sell Ivan Toney in the upcoming transfer window, and they intend to use part of the funds generated from his sale to acquire Jack Clarke. Toney has been heavily linked with Arsenal and Tottenham and is currently suspended for violating gambling rules.

Jack Clarke has been the standout performer in the Championship this season, scoring seven goals, which makes him one of the division’s top scorers. Sunderland’s manager, Tony Mowbray, acknowledges that it might be challenging to retain Clarke for a second consecutive transfer window.

Mowbray stated, “In the last transfer window, there were bids for Jack Clarke that were not accepted.

However, I would suggest that every player is potentially available for the right price. If selling one player can enable us to bring in three who we believe are better and worth the investment, we would consider it.

Our approach is not a negative one; it’s a means of generating revenue to develop young talents and make the team better. We would never rule out the possibility of selling a footballer.
