Sheffield United have joined a long list of clubs who are pursuing Toulouse forward Rhys Healey, according to reports in the UK.
The 26-year-old has scored 11 goals in 15 appearances this season and is currently leading the goalscoring charts in France’s second division.
It is believed that the Blades had a scout in attendance as Healey bagged all four goals in a 4-1 win against Sochaux on Saturday, but there were said to be representatives from other teams watching on too.
Premier League sides Brighton, Burnley and Norwich are also keeping tabs on the former MK Dons striker, along with Blackburn Rovers and West Brom, whilst another half a dozen clubs are reportedly keen on the player.
Healey’s contract at Toulouse expires in 2023 and, while they would be very reluctant to lose the striker, who is spearheading their promotion challenge from Ligue Two, they may have to sell up in order to ensure they can make a profit on the £1m they paid for him.
