Some West Ham fans have called for David Moyes to sign Sheffield United midfielder Sander Berge if the Blades get relegated this season.
Hammers boss David Moyes was keen to bolster his central midfield options in the summer. But the Scot failed to do so.
And we are now particularly weak as far as our engine room strength in depth is concerned.
And some West Ham fans have urged Moyes to bring Sander Berge to the London Stadium in order to solve that particular issue, if Sheffield United end up going down…
Chris Wilder will undoubtedly want to keep the 22-year-old Norway international at Bramall Lane, however.
The Blades signed Berge on a four-and-a-half year in January of this year for a club record £22 million fee (BBC).
So West Ham will surely have to offer Sheffield United a huge amount for them to even consider selling the 22-year-old.
Berge has racked up two goals and two assists for Chris Wilder’s side in 22 Premier League appearances thus far. In those outings, he has recorded 31 tackles, 102 ball recoveries, 110 successful individual duels and 44 successful aerial battles (premierleague.com).
The Norwegian is a very good player and would strengthen our option in central midfield considerably.
Sheffield United currently are sitting rock bottom of the Premier League table having taken just one point from their opening eight games.
And if they do go down, David Moyes should not hesitate to try and bring Berge to the London Stadium.
