The Athletic are backing Burnley to consider a move for Derby County winger Kamil Jozwiak this summer as part of their scouting guide of the European Championships.

Derby signed Jozwiak from Lech Poznan for around £3 million last summer.

The Poland international has shown glimpses of real quality, possessing excellent close ball control, dribbling ability and movement out of tight spaces.

Derby, however, endured a disappointing campaign. Jozwiak managed just one goal and two assists over the course of his debut season at Championship level.

On the international stage, though, the winger has quickly established himself as one of Poland’s rising talents who looks the part alongside better, more technical teammates.

A Polish publication recently dubbed Jozwiak a national treasure while others called him manager Paulo Sousa’s greatest discovery during the last international break.

Burnley’s transfer history with Derby:

The stage is set for him to showcase his talent at Euro2020. The Athletic, meanwhile, are backing Premier League side Burnley to cast an eye over his progress.

The Clarets have established themselves as top-flight side in recent years.

Jozwiak certainly has the capabilities to play at a higher level than the Championship.

Derby won’t want to lose him while there is so much potential to unearth, but the club’s current financial situation could make them vulnerable to any offers this summer.
