The 24-year-old joined the Blades from Swansea City for around £20 million in the summer of 2019 (BBC).

The 17-capped Scotland international has struggled for goals during his time at Bramall Lane, however, with just seven to his name in 65 games (Transfermarkt).

West Ham should avoid Oli McBurnie move

The Hammers can do a lot better than the 24-year-old Sheffield United hitman.

David Moyes cannot get the striker signings wrong this summer.

The West Ham boss should be looking to add an experienced free agent or a loan signing as well.

Added to that, a young player with bundles of potential should be on Moyes’s radar – someone like Adam Hlozek of Abdallah Sima.
