Sheffield United will be hoping to build on a positive season last time out with some new additions.
An ageing strike force will be playing on the mind of the Blades boss, who will be looking to bolster his ageing strike force.
The Bramall Lane outfit currently rely on 30+ year old front men Leon Clarke and Billy Sharp.
The Blades will be looking to move further ahead of cross-City rivals Sheffield Wednesday.
A 10th Championship placed finish surpassed expectations of many last season, and has given the club a strong platform to build on.
Chris Wilder’s squads are built on grit, determination and work ethic. He will be looking to bring in players with the right personalities as well as technical ability, to keep team spirit high at the South Yorkshire club. Wilder will want to get his business done sooner rather than later, to properly gel his squad together.
With that in mind, here’s two deals the Blades boss will want over the line before pre-season gets into full flow.
The young Liverpool starlet is being courted by the Chris Wilder’s outfit, according to Goal.com. The Blades face competition from Norwich City to get the loan deal done.
Ben W00dburn is an exciting talent.
The 18-year-old has already scored a goal for the Welsh National side, he has made six Premier League appearances, but perhaps needs to move on loan to gain more experience.
Sheffield United might prove to be the perfect opportunity for Woodburn to showcase his talents.
Wilder will be hoping to get this deal over the line as soon as possible.
Sheffield United will be hoping to seal Scott Hogan from the cash-strapped Villains before too long.
He certainly fits the bill of “proven Championship strikers” in which Wilder was hoping to bring to Bramall Lane
The striker netted 14 goals in 25 Championship appearances for Brentford in the 2016/17 season. This signing would certainly improve Sheffield United’s forward options.
