Maxwel Cornet, a winger for Burnley, is the subject of increased attention from Nottingham Forest, according to reports. The Clarets’ best player last season, when they were relegated on the penultimate day of the Premier League season, was the winger, who can also play wing-back. Cornet joined Burnley for £12.85 million from Lyon and scored nine goals in 26 games. Currently, Forest and Everton are the two clubs favored to entice the Ivory Coast international away from Turf Moor for an immediate return to the Premier League after their relegation to the Championship. Additionally, The Times reports that Steve Cooper’s team has “stepped up” its efforts to sign the 25-year-old.

According to the report, the Reds have submitted a bud in an effort to sign Cornet to their roster this summer. The rumored £17.5 million buy-out provision in the winger’s contract, though, is lower than their initial offer. After graduating from the Metz youth academy, he spent his entire career in France before moving to England. Before being signed by Lyon in January 2015, he made his professional debut in August 2013, making one of his 25 appearances for the French team. Over the course of his five and a half years with Les Gones, Cornet made over 250 appearances, contributing 29 assists in addition to 51 goals. In August 2020, he scored the game’s first goal with a deft finish as Lyon defeated Manchester United in the legendary 3-1 Champions League quarterfinal.
