The Star claimed yesterday that Chris Wilder will listen to any offers for the 26-year-old in January.

So it seems as though he could be on his way out of Bramall Lane.

Lundstram’s current deal is set to expire in next summer. So the Blades obviously don’t want to risk losing him for nothing.

And the Mirror claims that West Ham boss David Moyes wants to bring the midfielder to the London Stadium. Rangers manager Steven Gerrard allegedly wants to bring him to Ibrox as well.

Lundstram joined Sheffield United from Oxford United in the summer of 2017 for around £700,000 (The Star).

The 26-year-old played a key role for the Blades last season, racking up five goals and three assists in 34 Premier League games (Transfermarkt).

Lundstram has played all six games for Sheffield United this term, and has put in a real shift each and every time.

He is an incredibly hard working midfielder, and would fit right in at either West Ham or Rangers.

It just remains to be seen whether the Hammers or the Gers prove to be the more attractive prospect for the 26-year-old.

He will have more chances to win titles at Ibrox with Rangers. But the pull that West Ham have is that we compete in the Premier League against the world’s best teams and players.

Lundstram would be a very solid signing for us. Especially for a bargain fee. Whether we are able to beat Rangers to his signature, however, is another matter entirely.
