. For me that is the priority," said Kompany, as published by Lancs Live. "At this moment in time Max is not going to be involved on Saturday and with the situation ongoing we will manage it." Cornet’s move to West Ham, should the medical be completed as expected, would make him the club’s fifth signing of the summer after Alphonse Areola, Nayef Aguerd, Flynn Downes and Gianluca Scamacca, also taking the club’s summer spending to around £100m. Last season, Cornet scored nine times in 26 Premier League appearances for the Clarets but was unable to keep them in England’s top-flight. He would be the latest name among a big list of summer departues from Turf Moor if Cornet’s move goes through as expected, with James Tarkowski and Dwight McNeil both joining Everton, Nick Pope joining Newcastle United, Ben Mee joining Brentford and Nathan Collins signing for Wolverhampton Wanderers.
