Burnley forward Maxwel Cornet is the subject of huge interest after the club's relegation to the Championship, 90min understands.

The 25-year-old netted nine times in the Premier League but was unable to prevent his side from dropping down to the second tier - Burnley's fate sealed on the final day of the season after a 2-1 defeat to Newcastle at Turf Moor.

Relegation has activated a £17.5m release clause written into the five-year contract Cornet signed when he joined the club last summer, and 90min understands that a host of clubs are interested in signing him.

Fulham, West Ham, Newcastle, Brighton, Everton, Wolves, Crystal Palace and Leicester have contacted Cornet's representatives to gauge his interest in a move, while Arsenal and Tottenham - who sealed a place in next season's Champions League on the final day of the season - think he could add quality cover at full-back or wing-back.

Clubs from Spain, Germany and Italy are also intrigued by Cornet's affordable release clause, making a summer departure from Turf Moor almost an inevitability.

Before joining Burnley, Cornet spent six full seasons at Lyon, and famously scored in the surprise 3-1 win over Manchester City in the quarter-finals of the 2019/20 Champions League.
