Sheffield United news: Update on Sander Berge's future as Liverpool and Manchester United chase Bundesliga striker

Most of the recent transfer speculation at Sheffield United has surrounded the future of John Lundstram but now, it’s Sander Berge’s turn.

Berge, the Blades’ record signing at £22million, opted to move to Bramall Lane ahead of a number of European clubs last January having starred in Belgium with Genk.

The 23-year-old enjoyed a decent start to his United career, though it has been halted of late after being sidelined since December.

The Norwegian, alongside Jack O’Connell, is desperate to be back in Wilder’s starting XI as he continues to his rehab.

But as he looks to try and aid the Blades’ survival hopes, Wilder has made a frank admission over his long-term future.

Speaking to Norwegian station TV2, the 50-year-old has suggested that it might not be long before he starts looking for a bigger challenge.

“I think this (Sheffield United) has always been a springboard for Sander,” said Wilder.

"He wants to play at the highest level, he wants to play Champions League regularly and he wants to play for a top team.

“We gave him an opportunity to show off his skills and he has taken it. If he plays well, he makes us a better team, but I know that day will come.

“I understand, if he goes and if it happens, then it happens with our blessing.

“I wish Sander all the best. Do I think he can play for a top club? Absolutely, but for that to happen, he has to keep doing well here.”

Previous reports from his homeland have claimed the 23-year-old is on Arsenal’s radar.

Here’s a round-up of the latest gossip doing the rounds across the Premier League:
