Arsenal offered further hope in pursuit of midfielder as EFL club prepare for sale

Published

Sheffield United are still expecting to see Sander Berge depart this summer as Arsenal are continuously  linked with a move for the Norwegian midfielder. 

Berge was a club-record arrival at Bramall Lane when he signed from Genk back in January 2020.

Since then, Berge has made 32 appearances for the Blades and scored twice in the Premier League.

Injuries impacted the 23-year-old badly last season, which contributed to Sheffield United’s struggle and eventual relegation into the EFL again.

For Berge, though, it doesn’t appear like he will be sticking around in the Championship and a move back into the Premier League could well beckon.

As per the Sheffield Star, Sheffield United are planning on the midfielder departing this summer, with Arsenal the club strongly linked with a move to sign him.

It’s been claimed by Football London that Berge would be keen on a move to the Emirates Stadium this summer, with Martin Odegaard’s potential presence in the squad in North London swaying that decision.

21 things every Sheffield United fan should know about their club, so can you score 100% on this?

1. What year were they formed?

Back at Bramall Lane, Sheffield United have appointed Slavisa Jokanovic as the club’s new boss, with the Serbian the permanent successor to Chris Wilder in South Yorkshire.

Jokanovic has previously won promotion from the Championship with Watford and Fulham.

The Verdict 

The sale of someone like Berge was to be expected at Sheffield United this summer. It was probably unrealistic to expect the club to carry a midfielder valued so highly back into the Championship.

Berge is of a good enough standard to play in the Premier League and be pushing on towards Europe rather than fighting relegation.

That’s why Arsenal are in for him. They aren’t the powerhouse they once were, but they are looking to get back to that level. Berge would help them do that.

Sheffield United, though, won’t let their midfielder go on the cheap, even if they expect him to eventually depart.
