Sheffield United are considering whether to sign Everton midfielder Mo Besic on a permanent basis, according to reports in Bosnia.
The 27-year-old spent most of the season on loan at Bramall Lane, although the midfielder did not play regularly, having made just 13 appearances in all competitions for the Blades.
Besic will not be available that cheaply either with it being suggested that a fee between €3m (£2.7m) and €5m (£4.5m) will be needed to secure the player’s signature.
With the Bosnian international’s contract expiring next summer, that may prove a bit steep for United, considering how sparingly manager Chris Wilder used him last campaign.
The Blades will not be the only team interested in Besic either, with relegated Bournemouth also believed to have a strong desire to snap up the midfielder.
You would have thought the Eddie Howe’s side would be the favourites at this stage, unless Everton opt to lower their asking price, which could happen considering they are keen to offload the player.
