Manchester United forward Jesse Lingard is attracting the interest of Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder, according to the Sheffield Star.
Despite ostensibly being used as a winger during his career, it is thought that Wilder wants Lingard as a possible replacement for midfielder John Lundstram.
It is believed that Lundstram could be sold in the January transfer window, with his contract set to expire in the summer. The likes of West Ham and Rangers are thought to be keen on the midfielder.
In addition to Lingard, the Blades have been linked with another Manchester United player, centre-back Marcos Rojo. However, despite the Argentine having his admirers at the club, Wilder is expected to look at other options instead.
A new centre-back is thought to be the main priority, ahead of another midfielder, so a bid for Lingard may only happen later on in January when the club’s other targets are secured.
