Sheffield United are showing interest in Reading midfielder John Swift but face stiff competition from Aston Villa and Leeds United.
With Chris Wilder seemingly keen to push on from his side’s impressive ninth-placed finish in the Premier League this term, the transfer window could offer much in terms of adding improvements to his squad.
One player linked with a move to Bramall Lane is Swift, who has been performing well for Reading over the last 12 months, netting six goals and supplying 10 assists in 41 Championship appearances during the 2019/20 season.
Joining both Sheffield United and Villa with reported interest are newly-promoted Premier League side Leeds United, with head coach Marcelo Bielsa having revealed his admiration for the midfielder in the past.
With interest developing in Swift, no deal is expected to push forward until the midfielder returns from his holiday in Spain, as reported by Yorkshire Live.
Swift fully deserves a chance to show his ability in the Premier League after impressing for Reading in the Championship.
Where he would best be suited is up for debate, and while the chance to potentially replace Grealish at Villa or get on board Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United experience could be very tempting, Wilder should be able to push the enormous potential of a Sheffield United side who are now among the Premier League’s top 10.
Do you think a summer move for Swift would be a good one for Sheffield United? Let us know in the comments section below…
