West Ham could make an offer in the region of £4million to sign Burnley defender James Tarkowski in January, according to Claret and Hugh.

The 29-year-old has six months left on his current contract at the club and he’s unlikely to sign an extension, making him a free agent at the end of the season.

The Evening Standard reported in November 2021 that the Clarets value him at £20million.


Burnley know that nobody is going to match their asking rate for a player who will be available for free in the summer.

They should have ideally cashed in on him at the start of the season, but now that they haven’t, they’ve been backed into a corner.

Given their financial situation, they would be reluctant to let him leave on a free transfer so they’re likely to recover something from his sale in January.

He would ideal for the Hammers amid their defensive injury crisis and would arguably be their best defender even after Kurt Zouma returns to full fitness.

Despite being in a side like Burnley, he’s managed to shine out and has time and again flirted with an England cap.

A player labelled as “Sensational” by Keith Andrews, may just need a London Stadium move to get himself in Gareth Southgate’s squad.
