Swansea City have not received any fresh bids for in-demand striker Oli McBurnie, according to Wales Online.
McBurnie has been the subject of interest from newly promoted Sheffield United this summer, but it was reported last week that Swansea have already rejected a £15million bid for the striker’s services.
It is now understood the Welsh club have not received any follow-up offers from the Blades following this initial bid, and they are hoping this remains to be the case.
The Swans are thought to be holding out for a £20million offer for McBurnie, after the Scotsman’s 22 league goals helped the club secure a 10th-placed finish last term.
This means any potential deal is now in the Blades’ hands, but Chris Wilder has now signed a striker since the initial McBurnie bid was rejected with Bournemouth’s Lys Mousset arriving in Yorkshire over the weekend.
This is encouraging news for Swansea fans as it would come as a monumental blow if McBurnie was to leave the club at this stage of the window.
McBurnie’s tireless work rate and clinical goalscoring touch means he would be extremely difficult for the Swans to replace, particularly with such a small amount of the window left.
It appears that the Blades have cooled their interest after signing Mousset from Bournemouth, as the quoted £20million fee does appear steep for the striker’s services.
However, if the Blades do eventually meet this valuation, Swansea fans can take comfort from the fact that it would help ease the club’s financial concerns significantly.
