Leeds are considering whether to make a move for Sheffield United midfielder Sander Berge, according to journalist Dean Jones.
The Premier League side are drawing up a list of possible transfer targets and Jones claims that the Whites feel Berge’s interest in leaving Bramall Lane will make him a realistic option:
“They’re obviously drawing up a list, at the moment, of players that they see as attainable more than anything and that fit in with Jesse Marsch’s style of play. Sander Berge, basically, is just one that is playing at a level below where he should be, and Leeds are getting the impression that he’s looking for a transfer.”
While the likes of Arsenal and Aston Villa have been mentioned as potential suitors for Berge in the past, it is believed that the Blades have never received a formal offer for the player they signed for £22m two and a half years ago,
United have reportedly dropped their asking price for Berge from £35m to £25m recently and Leeds may well be in a position to match the valuation if they do sell Kalvin Phillips.
Manchester City are said to be very keen on signing the 26-year-old, and if they do secure the player’s services this summer, it could pave the way for Berge to make the switch to Elland Road.
