Premier League new boys Burnley have made Dawson one of their top targets this summer and have already seen two bids rebuffed for the centre-back.

Burnley saw their first offer rejected in June before coming back with an improved bid last week which was also turned down by West Brom.

However, Sean Dyche's side are determined to land former England Under 21 international and are believed to be readying a third offer for the talented defender.

West Brom are reluctant to lose Dawson as they want to keep hold of their best players, but could risk seeing him becoming unsettled if he does not play regularly in Alan Irvine's starting XI next season.

Dawson has found Premier League action hard to come by since moving to The Hawthorns from Rochdale, and Burnley are hoping the chance to play on a regular basis at Turf Moor could help lure the 24-year-old away from the Hawthorns.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
