Burnley are in advanced talks to sign Italy youth international winger Luca Koleosho from Spanish side Espanyol.

Koleosho, 18, made four substitute appearances in La Liga last season, scoring once, as Espanyol finished 19th and were relegated to the second tier.

Born in the United States, Koleosho was part of the Italy squad that won the Under-19 European Championship last week.

He would become Burnley’s eighth summer signing for a reportedexternal-link £2.6m fee.
