Burnley have reportedly joined Hull City in the hunt for Brentford’s star striker Andre Gray.

The Tigers have been pursuing the 24-year-old hotshot all summer long, with the Bees already rejecting two previous approaches for their prized asset from Steve Bruce’s side.

Gray, who only arrived at Griffin Park last summer from Luton Town, scored 18 goals in 50 appearances in all competitions during his impressive debut season at Brentford.

After climbing off the bench to score in Saturday’s 2-2 draw against Ipswich Town, recently relegated Burnley have now entered the frame.

Clarets manager Sean Dyche, who has sold last season’s top goalscorer Danny Ings to Liverpool this summer, has only three fit forwards at Turf Moor following Ashley Barnes’ latest injury, leaving just Sam Vokes, Lukas Jutkiewicz and Jelle Vossen remaining.
