Burnley target Quilindschy Hartman to replace Chelsea’s Ian Maatsen

Feyenoord defender Quilindschy Hartman has become a prime target for Premier League club Burnley in their search for a new left-back, according to 1908 NL.

After the departure of Ian Maatsen, who has returned to parent club Chelsea, the Clarets want a replacement and Hartman is on their radar.

Maatsen spent last season on loan at Burnley in the Championship. The 21-year-old helped them climb into the Premier League, bagging four goals and six assists in 39 appearances.

He was a target for Feyenoord last summer before he joined Burnley. Maatsen has returned to Chelsea, and Burnley want the Feyenoord man to replace him.

Hartman caught Burnley’s attention with his impressive performances, showing solid grounding defensively and offensively. 

During a recent pre-season match against Benfica, the 21-year-old assisted fan-favourite Santiago Gimenez and left Burnley’s scouts thoroughly impressed.

Burnley’s interest in Hartman is not a secret, but Feyenoord will not let Hartman go without a fight. 

The Rotterdam club value him at over €20 million and will offer him a contract extension to keep him in their ranks.

West Ham United are also showing interest in Hartman with Aaron Cresswell leaving. However, the Hammers have yet to make a concrete move, giving Burnley the advantage in their pursuit.

Burnley do not have many left-back options, with only Charlie Taylor in their squad. 

Hartman’s contract with Feyenoord runs until 2025, but negotiations for an extension have hit a roadblock. 

Feyenoord are optimistic about retaining the young defender but could change their stance if they receive a substantial offer from Burnley.
