Crystal Palace head coach Frank de Boer confirms that he holds an interest in signing RB Leipzig winger Oliver Burke.

Crystal Palace head coach Frank de Boer has acknowledged that RB Leipzig winger Oliver Burke is on his transfer shortlist.

On Friday, it was reported that De Boer had identified the Scottish international as a potential signing after Wilfried Zaha was said to have been ruled out of action for a month.

However, while speaking highly of the former Nottingham Forest youngster, De Boer has suggested that he also has other targets in mind before the end of the summer window.

The 47-year-old told reporters: "We want quality players who can improve the squad, are 100% fit and can fit in directly with how we are playing.

"RB Leipzig winger Oliver Burke is a very promising, young Scottish player. It is always interesting to look at, but we are focusing on other players too."

Last summer, RB Leipzig paid Forest a fee of £13m for Burke, but the wideman made just five starts and 20 substitute appearances in the Bundesliga.
