Norwich City are interested in making a move to sign Sheffield United right-back Jayden Bogle this summer ahead of a return to the Premier League, according to Sky Sports’ Transfer Centre (22/06/21, 16:02).
Bogle was only signed by Sheffield United from Derby County last summer and he managed to enjoy an impressive first campaign in the Premier League despite the Blades’ struggles in the top-flight. In total, the 20-year-old managed to score two goals in his 16 appearances in the league.
Following Sheffield United’s relegation from the Premier League, there has already been interest in one or two of their key players. That comes with Arsenal thought to be interested in signing both Sander Berge and goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale from the Blades this summer.
Quiz: Did each of these 20 midfielders ever score a goal for Sheffield United?
Now according to Sky Sports’ Transfer Centre (22/06/21, 16:02), the Blades are going to face a battle to keep hold of Bogle as well this summer with Norwich City placing the 20-year-old on their list of potential transfer targets. That comes as the Canaries aim to ramp up their transfer preparations ahead of their crucial first season back in the top-flight.
This would be a massive blow for the Blades if they were to lose Bogle this summer. The 20-year-old is a quality player for them and he will only continue to increase in value both in terms of the transfer market and to the side as well. He was one of their best performers last term in a difficult season and that shows how much potential he has.
The 20-year-old though seems to be the perfect sort of signing for Norwich to make this summer and he fits in with their recruitment model of signing young and talented players to be developed. The chance to remain in the Premier League might well be very appealing to the right-back and the Blades are going to have to work hard to show him they have ambition and convince him to stay.
Contractually speaking, Sheffield United are in a strong place with Bogle and therefore there is no real reason for them to be overly concerned about interest in him. However, if Norwich do firm up their interest with an offer in the coming weeks then they will have to be prepared to try and remain firm because he is a player they should do all they can to keep.
