Tottenham Hotspur have made a bid for Sander Berge, which has been rejected by Sheffield United, according to Homme Du Match.

Bid made

Tottenham’s offer of £17 million has fallen short of the Blades valuation for the midfielder.

Sheffield United actually paid a club record fee of £22 million for Berge just 18 months ago, and despite their relegation to the Championship they do not seem to be willing to take a loss on the midfielder.

Indeed the update suggests that the Blades will only sell Berge if his release clause is met, which is set at £35 million.

Berge showed plenty of promise during his time in the Premier League, which has seen him linked with the likes of Tottenham, Everton and Arsenal this summer.

Tottenham do appear to be on the hunt for another midfielder, and Berge could offer some valuable assets to accompany Pierre Emile Hojbjerg.

Creating havoc

Berge possesses good energy and also is a strong technical operator, meaning he could be a good partner for Hojbjerg.

Emile Heskey is a big fan and told HITC that he thinks the midfielder ‘creates havoc’ in the final third.

Tottenham may be buying the Norwegian more for his potential than his current ability, though.

And there would have to be doubts over whether he would walk straight into the first-team if he did sign – with the likes of Harry Winks, Tanguy Ndombele and Oliver Skipp all still at the club.
