Clarets target tipped for Royals deal
Burnley look set to miss out on January target Nelson Oliveira with Championship side Reading tipped to land the Norwich City forward.
The Clarets, along with fellow Premier League outfit Huddersfield, were being linked with a move for the former Benfica and Deportivo La Coruna striker, who has 17 caps for Portugal to his name.
However, it appears Burnley have moved their interest on to other potential targets, with struggling Reading looking set to secure the services of the 27-year-old who has become surplus to requirements at Carrow Road.
Burnley boss Sean Dyche has been keen to play down the possibility of new arrivals heading to Turf Moor but that has not stopped a number of players being linked with a move to the Lancashire outfit, including former Cardiff midfielder Gary Medel.
