Sheffield United are reportedly interested in making a summer move for Everton midfielder Muhamed Besic, according to a report shared by Sport Witness.
After a successful season in the Premier League, finishing inside the top ten, Blades boss Chris Wilder will undoubtedly be keen to further improve on that finish and could look to the summer transfer window to bring in squad improvements.
One potential summer arrival has emerged over the last few days with former United midfielder Besic being linked to the club.
The Bosnian spent last season on loan at Bramall Lane from Premier League rivals Everton but made just a handful of league appearances, nine in total.
However, a latest report has now claimed that the Blades and recently relegated Bournemouth are showing interest.
The 27-year-old, who is valued by Transfermarkt at £2.16m, is claimed to be available for around the £3.5m mark with Everton seemingly keen to cash in before his contract comes to an end next summer.
Besic did not make the impact he would have wanted at United this term, so spending £3.5m or around that figure is probably not the best move for the Blades.
Indeed, they also added Sander Berge to their side in January which pushed Besic further down the pecking order, and with John Fleck, John Lundstram, Oliver Norwood, Luke Freeman and Ben Osborn also at their disposal, another midfielder probably isn’t what is needed.
Wilder should instead use those funds to bolster his attack, which was arguably the Blades’ main weakness last season as they managed to score just 39 goals.
Do you think Besic would make a good signing for Sheffield United? Let us know in the comments section below…
