Sheffield United’s move for striker Scott Hogan depends on Aston Villa’s transfer activity, reports The Sheffield Star.
Aston Villa have run into financial difficulties this summer and are forced to sell to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations.
All of their strikers could be on the move or not this summer, with Jonathan Kodjia attracting interest, Hogan wanted by Sheffield United, Keinan Davis a target for Southampton and Ross McCormack still being frozen out.
If Davis does leave to join Southampton, Steve Bruce will be desperate to keep Hogan.
The 26-year-old has only scored eight goals in his year and a half at Villa Park but was prolific for Brentford before that big money move.
Sheffield United are targeting a loan swoop for Hogan this summer but if Davis leaves, they need to look at alternatives.
If Davis joins the Saints, Sheffield United could increase their interest in Sam Gallagher, who will be forced down the pecking order at St Mary’s Stadium.
Hogan on loan would be a good addition for Sheffield United and they should press ahead with this.
The former Rochdale and Brentford man needs to thrive in a new environment like Bramall Lane, where he can lead the line and prove himself in the second tier again.
But it all depends on Aston Villa’s business and they might have to settle for Gallagher instead.
