Reports that Arsenal had bid for Sander Berge have been wiped out by Sheffield United’s manager Paul Heckingbottom, and the Blades have yet to receive any player bids with a £ 35 million release clause.


What Heckingbottom said about Sander Berge

It has been speculated that interest in the Norwegian international from Emirates Stadium is on the rise, with a £ 17m approach coming from north London. Paul Heckingbottom insists no, and there is still no substance to the rumors that continue to link the talented 23-year-old midfielder to the Gunners, Liverpool, Everton and Aston Villa. Ahead of the Premier League meeting with Newcastle about whether any bids for Sander Berge have been dropped, Paul said no, no suggestions and that they know how things work. If something happens for their players, it scours behind the scenes until the transfer windows open and anything can happen, but this is all paper talk. According to Paul, most of the questions asked about possible goals never work. Ninety odd percent of it will never come up. At the moment, these are all just rumors and speculation and that they did not have any suggestions for our players.


A little about Sander

Sheffield United broke its transfer record by acquiring Sander from Genk for £ 22m in January 2020. Caught my eye when the Blades secured a top half finish in their first campaign in a big time. The hike turned out to be tougher this time around, however, with a relegation back to the championship confirmed with just 20 points taken from 36 games. Sander was a massive miss due to injury, with only 16 appearances in all competitions. Berge returned from a hamstring problem that required surgery in recent weeks, but served 21 games between mid-December and early May. Berge’s abilities remain unquestioned despite the fitness setbacks, and a deal is pending for the summer window as the Blades prepare for life back in the second tier of English football.
