BURNLEY are preparing a summer move for ex-Tottenham star Nabil Bentaleb, according to reports.
The Clarets are planning for a sixth consecutive Premier League campaign as their relegation fears ebb away.
France-born Algeria midfielder Bentaleb will be a free agent in July when his contract expires with Germans Schalke.
And reports in Algeria and Italy claim the 26-year-old is a target for Turf Moor boss Sean Dyche as well as Greeks Olympiacos.
Bentaleb came through Spurs' academy and made 66 senior appearances before leaving for Schalke in 2016.
He had a spell on loan to Newcastle last season, playing 15 matches.
The Lille-born ace has missed much of this season, firstly being left out for disciplinary reasons.
Bentaleb was then sidelined by injury and has just played 10 times.

Schalke have just been relegated after 30 years in the Bundesliga.
Bentaleb is now eager to rebuild his once-promising career – and the 35-cap international is thought to be tempted by a Premier League return.
He could now become one of Burnley's few non-British players as manager Dyche plots to strengthen his squad for next season.
