Huddersfield Town and Burnley target left back

Huddersfield Town and Burnley are targeting Boli Mbombo, the cousin of Romelu Lukaku according to The Sun.

The Rapid Vienna full back could be on his way to England to join Lukaku with him attracting interest from the Terriers and the Clarets.

Mbombo who is the cousin of Manchester United star Romelu Lukaku was scouted in the Austrian top flight last season and it is believed that he will have a number of clubs fighting for his signature this summer transfer window.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche is looking for cover in the left back area for next season as they are renowned for having a host of unchanged line ups and he wants to reinvest in the squad for another long season in the Premier League.

Mbombo is valued at around £3million and Huddersfield are also looking to improve in the defensive area after being relegated to the Championship last season.

The Belgian born Mbombo can also play as a winger emphasising his versatility and has previous experience of playing in the Champions League earlier in his career.

He started his career at Club Brugge in his homeland, where he made his debut as a teenager, before earning a move to Vienna two years ago.

Rapid Vienna are not involved in European competition next season which could make the 23-year-old consider his options and look for a fresh challenge in England.

The 23-year-old played 42 games for Austrian outfit Rapid Vienna last season, including seven in the Europa League.

He is also the cousin of Jordan Lukaku, brother of Romelu, who has also been linked with a move to England.

Should these deals progress and both Lukaku and Mbombo make the move to English football it could be quite the footballing family plying their trade in the English leagues.
