Burnley to make shock transfer move for Benfica's Carlos Joaquim dos Santos with American to be cover for Nick Pope

BURNLEY will make a shock move for Benfica’s goalkeeper Carlos Joaquim dos Santos. 

The American wants to come to the Premier League.

And the Clarets fancy a bargain swoop for the 20-year-old.

Sean Dyche wants the youngster to act as cover for Nick Pope.

Tall and powerful, ‘CJ’ has just made the full USA national squad.

He is currently playing for Benfica’s B team. 

However, Burnley have seen enough of the stopper to convince them to sign him.

And Dos Santos should make the criteria for a work permit if Burnley can sort out a deal. 

Meanwhile, promotion-chasing Norwich and Brentford have Huddersfield midfield dynamo Lewis O’Brien on their wanted list. 

Both the Canaries and Bees expect to be in the market for new players in the summer if they make the Premier League.

O’Brien, 22, has been a Burnley target for months.

However, Sean Dyche’s side have yet to make a bid. 

But their ambitious Championship rivals may now beat them to it for the Essex lad.

He penned a three-year deal with the Terriers in 2019, although the Terriers do have an option to trigger a 12-month extension on his current contract.
