Burnley are targeting a move for Everton defender Jonjoe Kenny, but will face strong competition for his services.

Clarets boss Sean Dyche is looking to add a number of new signings to his ranks this summer and is ready to make a move for Kenny, who looks to be up for grabs.

Burnley were keen to do a deal in the January transfer window but the Toffees refused to sell at that point and the 22-year-old ended up staying at Goodison Park.

Dyche is being tipped to re-ignite his interest in this window however, and hopes to finally wrap up a deal.

Everton are expected to strengthen their own defence and that could push Kenny, who only made 10 appearances last season, further down the pecking order.

Burnley are not the only interest party though as Premier League rivals Crystal Palace are also said to be in the hunt and could make a move for the former England youth international.
