Cook was a stand-out performer for Bournemouth this season and his efforts have not gone unnoticed.

The 23-year-old central defender has established himself as one of the best young players outside the Premier League.

A number of clubs have been credited with holding an interest in Cook, but Burnley are hoping to steal a march on their rivals by luring him to Turf Moor.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche is actively looking to bolster his squad ahead of a return to the Premier League and is thought to have identified Cook as one of their top targets.

Bournemouth tied Cook down to a new deal last summer, but they are bracing themselves for offers for the former Brighton man as a result of his fine form at Dean Court.

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
