According to a report from the Sheffield Star, West Ham and Rangers could scrap it out for Sheffield United midfielder John Lundstram this summer.

Hammers boss David Moyes will be keen to bolster his central midfield ranks at the London Stadium this summer.

And the same can be said of Gers manager Steven Gerrard at Ibrox.

The problem for West Ham, however, is that funds are tight in east London. And unless Rangers sell Alfredo Morelos, the Glasgow giants are very much much in the same situation.

The Sheffield Star claims that both the Hammers and the Gers are keen on Blades midfielder John Lundstram because he would be available for a bargain fee, with just 12 months remaining ion his current deal at Bramall Lane.

 

Chris Wilder is allegedly still hopeful that the 26-year-old remains at Sheffield United. But if he fails to sign a new deal, the prudent move would be to sell him for a nominal fee, rather than risk losing him for nothing next year.

Stats

Lundstram joined Sheffield United in the summer of 2017 from Oxford United. And he has gone on to be a real hit for Chris Wilder at Bramall Lane.

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

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 or not the Hammers or the Gers go all out to prise him away from Bramall Lane this summer.
