French publication Jeunes Footeux have claimed that Arsenal have launched an opening offer for Tottenham Hotspur target, Sander Berge. 

Berge has been a long-term target for Spurs, who were reportedly tracking him as far back as 2018.

Despite Sheffield United’s relegation from the top flight this season, the midfielder’s reputation has grown since he arrived in English football 18 months ago.

It was reported back in March that the Norway international was attracting interest from Tottenham as well as their North London rivals.

Jeunes Footeux now claim that Berge desires to continue playing in the Premier League and is thus likely to leave Bramall Lane this summer.

It is said that Arsenal have made the first move, with the Gunners launching an offer of around €20m (£17.2m) for the 23-year-old. 

However, the report suggests that the Blades are set to turn down the bid as they value the former Genk star at €30m (£25.8m).

Spurs and Liverpool are also said to hold an interest in Berge and are watching the situation.
