Brian Laws is on record saying he is trying everything he can to keep highly rated Steven Fletcher at Turf Moor despite a number of Premier League clubs being linked to the 23 year old Scottish international striker. Wolves in particular, but also Birmingham, Bolton and Blackburn have all been reported to be interested.
Laws recently said after signing striker, Chris Iwelumo from Wolves:
"People may read into the fact that Chris Iwelumo is a possible replacement for Fletcher, which is not the case," said the Clarets manager.
"We don't want Steven to go. But, if he decides to leave, we will replace him.
"We need power and strength because the Championship is a very physical league, hence Chris's arrival.
"But I'm still looking for a goalscorer to complement my squad."
The Club's determination to try and keep Fletcher would appear to have been confirmed today with a report in the Daily Mail suggesting Wolves had been forced to increase their offer from £7.5 million to £8 million.
There was also an indication that Wolves gaffer, Mick McCarthy may be reluctant to release keeper, Wayne Hennessey on a season-long loan as part of the deal, but may have to do so in order to secure Fletcher's services.
However BBC Sport report that Fletcher is in negotiations with Wolves about a possible transfer from Burnley stating that a fee has been agreed between the two clubs after Burnley gave permission for him to speak to McCarthy.
These talks are expected to continue on Thursday between Wolves and the player, Burnley told BBC Scotland.
