It looks like Sheffield United will have a transfer battle on their hands as they look for a new midfielder in the upcoming transfer window.
According to a report in Greek media outlet SDNA, Sheffield United are interested in signing Mady Camara from Olympiacos but fellow Premier League side Newcastle United are also in the hunt.
The report highlights that both sides have made bids for the Guinea midfielder, although Olympiakos want more than what the Magpies and the Blades have proposed and will only sell the 23-year-old for more than £18m.
Camara is only 23 but seems to be a consistent player in the Olympiakos squad as he has played 44 times in all competitions including the Europa League and Champions League this season. Even though he is primarily a defensive midfielder, he has still managed six goals and four assists this campaign, per Transfermarkt.
Sheffield United usually play with three centre midfielders, so it is crucial that they have a lot of squad depth in that position, but Camara has the potential to break into that first team and become a key player for years to come.
The fact that Newcastle are also interested highlights that various scouts can see Premier League quality in the midfielder, and if the Blades want to continue battling in the top half of the division next season, then Camara would likely be an effective addition to their midfield ranks if they can land him.
