A report from the Sheffield Star has suggested that West Ham United are amongst the clubs to have shown interest in John Lundstram in the past amid speculation surrounding the midfielder’s Sheffield United future.
Lundstram’s future has been up in the air for some time. The Sheffield Star notes that he has been in contract talks with the Blades for around a year.
Chris Wilder has reportedly made it clear that the club’s latest offer will be their final one. With 12 months remaining on his terms at Bramall Lane, it is probably little surprise to see the 26-year-old attract attention.
Sky Sports reported on Monday that four Premier League rivals want Lundstram. They did not name the teams, and the Sheffield Star has also suggested that they cannot confirm the sides in the running.
Interestingly however, the Sheffield Star noted that West Ham and Brighton have been keen in the past.
So perhaps, it should not be a big surprise if one or both of the pair is monitoring the situation this summer.
TBR View: Lundstram could be shrewd signing amid contract uncertainty
Lundstram scored five goals during his first season in the Premier League. He also provided three assists for Sheffield United.
He is capable of playing in holding midfield or slightly further forward. So it is unsurprising that a number of clubs are reportedly keen.
And with 12 months remaining on his deal as things stand, he could be a shrewd signing.
While it is not clear whether West Ham are one of the four clubs being linked, he will surely be a name that will come up in conversation at the London Stadium given their previous interest.
