Burnley have tabled Ashley Young a contract offer as they seek to sign the 35-year-old on a free transfer.
The Clarets are keen on the versatile wideman, whose contract is up at Serie A champions Inter Milan, and have offered terms.
Lancs Live understands Young is now considering the proposal, believed to be for an initial 12 months with the option of a second year, as he weighs up his next move.
The former Manchester United man joined Inter in 2020 and helped the Italian giants lift the Serie A title last month.
Manager Antonio Conte subsequently left and there remains uncertainty about the long-term plans at the San Siro.
Inter are keen to keep Young, although reports suggest he has only been offered a one-year deal, while Watford were also keen on bringing the full back to Vicarage Road 14 years after he departed.
Young came through the ranks with the Hornets and was a team-mate of Burnley boss Sean Dyche's during the Clarets chief's two-year stay at the club as a player between 2003-05.
Dyche is keen to strengthen his ranks this summer and the acquisition of Young would provide experience, leadership and versatility.
He has been playing as a left wing back for Inter but is able to cover both full back positions and wide midfield, an area Burnley are desperately short in.
While he would not be a long-term answer, given his age, he arrives fresh from a season where he played 34 times in all competitions for Inter and would certainly add something to the Clarets ranks.
