Round Up: Blades Look To Sign 22-Goal Championship Ace, Norwich Want £15m Rated Keeper & Bournemouth Keen On Leeds Star


Sheffield United and Brighton are both looking to sign Swansea striker Oli McBurnie this summer, according to reports in the English media.

The Blades are said to want to strengthen their forward line with the Scottish international who scored 22 goals in the Championship last season.

Newly promoted Norwich are reportedly one of three clubs looking at Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.

The Reds have slapped a £15m price tag on the Belgian international with Watford and Bournemouth also looking out for a new goalkeeper.

The Cherries have been particularly active in the transfer window already after signing Lloyd Kelly from Bristol City for £13m.

They are now said to be keen on signing Leeds midfielder Kalvin Phillips with a £15m bid reportedly being lined up for the 23-year-old.

He has been an integral member of Marcelo Bielsa’s side that just missed out on promotion through the playoffs following a third-place finish.
