The Clarets were relegated from the English Premier League last season following an underwhelming campaign that led to the sack of long-serving manager Sean Dyche.

Vincent Kompany will now take charge of Burnley as the club tries to regain promotion back to the English Premier League in his first season in charge.

Having returned to the Championship for the first time after the 2015/16 season, the Clarets will be looking to make this stint in the second tier as short as possible.

According to reports, Ashimeru has been a big admirer of Vincent Kompany after cementing his place in the starting line up of RSC Anderlecht in February.

Ashimeru is under contract with Anderlecht until the summer of 2025.

It remains to be seen whether the 24-year-old will be interested in swapping the Belgian first division for the Championship, with his current club set to participate in the playoff round of the second edition of the Europa Conference League as well.
