A report in the Sheffield Star has claimed that Sheffield United will demand more than £35m for rumoured Tottenham Hotspur target Sander Berge.

Berge has reportedly been on Spurs’ radar for a long time, with the North Londoners first being linked with a move for the midfielder back in 2018.

The Norwegian international has impressed since making the switch to Sheffield United from Genk in January of last year.

It was reported two weeks ago that Spurs could try to snap up the 23-year-old in the summer and that Sheffield United would sell him for around £22.2m since they look destined for relegation.

However, the Sheffield Star now assert that the Blades believe that Berge’s real value is between £30m and £40m, even though he has been out injured since January.

The report reveals that Sheffield United would only come to the negotiating table if they receive such an offer.

Spurs could face plenty of competition for Berge’s signature, with the midfielder also said to be on the radars of Arsenal and Liverpool.

Spurs Web Opinion

With Skipp set to return and likely to play a prominent role in the first team next season, I believe we would only need to buy a central midfielder if both Winks and Sissoko are sold in the summer. With Hojbjerg, Skipp, Ndombele and Lo Celso in the squad, I am not sure the club would want to spend around £35m on a player who would be a backup.
