Sheffield United seem to be interested in acquiring some players for cut-price fees so that they can have a stronger squad for next season, and this has seen them linked with Abdul Mumin.
It seems like Mumin has not agreed a new deal with the club as he did not want to stay and consequently he is set to be available on a free transfer in the upcoming summer window.
Sheffield United have had to utilise their squad depth quite a bit in defence since the return of football, with Jack Robinson getting his first taste of Premier League action for the Blades and veteran defender Phil Jagielka also coming into the side due to injuries and suspensions.
This has probably highlighted to Chris Wilder that he needs more depth in the centre of defence and looking towards the signing of a free transfer in this department seems a good idea at first glance,
However, Mumin has only played his football in Denmark, with 70 appearances in the top two tiers in that country, per Transfermarkt, so the Premier League could be a huge step up for him, as illustrated by the respective leagues’ UEFA association club coefficient.
Therefore, even on a free, this possible signing does not seem like one which would greatly strengthen Sheffield United’s ranks, and Wilder should be looking elsewhere to get better quality in his squad.
Blades fans, should the club aim to sign Mumin on a free or do they need stronger defensive targets? Comment below with your views!
