PREMIER LEAGUE newcomers Burnley are reportedly close to signing a former Manchester United target.
Soumaila Coulibaly, 19, was once in the Red Devils’ sights after impressing at Paris Saint-Germain’s academy.
But he missed the chance to move to Old Trafford and instead joined Borussia Dortmund in 2021.
However, Coulibaly is finally set to make a move to the Premier League – but this time to Burnley.
The BBC claims the championship winner booked a medical for Coulibaly ahead of a season-long loan.
And Vincent Kompany’s side will then be forced to sign the teenage centre-back permanently for £15million next summer.
Coulibaly played just one Bundesliga game for Dortmund during his two years in Germany.
And he could come in as a replacement for loanee Taylor Harwood-Bellis, who is hoping for a chance at Manchester City after captaining England Under-21s to the EURO.
Coulibaly will be Burnley’s fifth signing of the summer, with Kompany already making the move for two other centre-backs.
Jordan Beyer’s move from Borussia Mönchengladbach is final.

And Dara O’Shea was caught by West Brom.
Meanwhile, striker Michael Obafemi has joined from Swansea on a permanent basis, while goalkeeper Lawrence Vigouroux joined on a free transfer from Leyton Orient.
There will be more signings as well, with England Under-21 hero and Man City goalkeeper James Trafford on the verge of a £19million move.
SunSport also know that Burnley are big fans of Arsenal midfielder Albert Sambi Lokonga, who spent last season at Crystal Palace.
