Premier League duo of Aston Villa and Everton are fighting for the signature of Burnley FC defender James Tarkowski.
Tarkowski has been one of the outstanding players for the Clarets over the seasons but with the club getting relegated to the Championship, clubs are already surrounding for some of their best talents.
The Daily Mail reports that the player is weighing up a double-your-money offer, worth around £120,000-per-week, from Aston Villa as they bid to win the race to sign the defender.
Apart from Villa and Everton, promoted side Fulham FC is the other team said to be interested in the player as they look to have players with Premier League experience in their ranks.

The player will be a free agent next month and the lack of transfer fee involved in signing him this summer has increased his appeal along with his prospects of securing a lucrative deal.
Everton are said to be ready to offer wages worth £90,000-per-week but Villa are willing to top that to land the 29-year-old who earns in the region of £60,000-per-week at Turf Moor.
