With Aaron Ramsdale signing for Sheffield United, the club do not need to worry about their goalkeeper situation any longer, and this means they can now focus on other aspects of the squad that need strengthening.
Indeed, Chris Wilder seems to have already identified what positions he will now target in the transfer window.
According to Sheffield Star journalist James Shield, the Blades manager is very keen to add a centre-forward to his squad before the 2020/21 season starts.
While the search for a striker seems to be the priority for Sheffield United, they are also reportedly keeping an eye on midfielders in case John Lundstram departs, with multiple Premier League clubs keen on a move for the 26-year-old, as per Sky Sports.
The interest in another striker makes perfect sense for the Blades as they would probably have wanted their forwards to have scored more regularly last season. Their top scorers were both strikers as Lyss Mousset and Oliver McBurnie scored six goals each, which is not exactly a brilliantly prolific haul for centre-forwards and scorers-in-chief.
It also makes sense due to the advancing years of Billy Sharp (34) and David McGoldrick (32) and therefore the club need to be thinking about their future options up front as that duo won’t be around for a lot longer.
If they can pick up a reliable striker with potential and a consistent eye for goal, then there is every chance that they can achieve another top 10 finish like they did last term.
It also makes perfect sense that they are looking for a midfielder due to the the transfer speculation surrounding Lundstram, and supporters of the Blades should be happy as it looks like the business they are trying to complete in this transfer window is being planned in good time.
