Burnley have reignited their interest in signing Coventry star Callum O’Hare, Sources told Football Insider.
The 24-year-old attacker has been pursued by the Championship ace all summer, with multiple bids rejected by second-tier rivals.
Burnley ended their pursuit of O’Hare with a serious hamstring injury that kept him out for the first few months of the season.
But he’s back in the game now and is fully healthy, and the Clarets have expressed their interest in a potential trade in January.
Coventry valued their bonus assets at £5m earlier this year, but Vincent Kompany’s promotion challengers will be looking to sign him for cheaper in the upcoming transfer window.
O’Hare 168 days without a game for Coventry, but came on as a substitute against Stoke City on 22 October.
The 24-year-old has started four of seven Championship games this season and provided two assists.
Former Aston Villa teenager O’Hare performed very well for the Sky Blues last season, scoring 5 goals and 8 assists.
The attacking midfielder’s contract expires in the summer of 2024 after he renewed his contract in January this year.
Coventry are 11th in the Championship after being without O’Hare’s output for most of the season.
Meanwhile, Burnley are expected to return to the Premier League immediately as they lead the second tier with three points after 21 games.
The two sides will return to action after a mid-season World Cup break on the second weekend of December.
