Sheffield United should swoop for this Southampton player to enforce a frightening attack

Published

Sheffield United supporters have little to complain following their title-winning campaign to earn promotion back to the Championship following six years in the third-tier.

The Blades have already been busy in the summer transfer window, as Ched Evans completed a move to Yorkshire earlier this month and Nathan Thomas of Hartlepool is strongly linked with an arrival.

Those two could be useful acquisitions for Chris Wilder but it is Championship-pedigree that the first-team needs and they will only get that by testing the waters, showing ambition in their signings.

Southampton striker Sam Gallagher fits that bill quite well.

The 21-year-old spent last season on loan at Blackburn Rovers, albeit he couldn’t help keep the club in the division.

That shouldn’t put Sheffield United off a potential swoop as he showed signs of promise on a consistent basis throughout the campaign, and could form a frightening attack alongside Billy Sharp.

Gallagher rippled the net on eleven occasions for Blackburn in 43 appearances with three assists.

Whilst that isn’t enough to guarantee a promotion push, it would meet the requirements for most supporters as he knows where the goal is.

An experienced attacker such as Sharp should pass on vital knowledge of football to the Saints striker to improve his game and that way they may just click, becoming a formidable force in the league next season.

A loan deal would be realistic for the Blades as you can’t imagine Southampton letting such an asset leave so early in his career.
