Who’s ready to make the step up?
That was the question that Sheffield United fans were attempting to answer on social media yesterday, following the lead from @Blades1889_com.
With the transfer window now officially in full swing, they asked fans if there were any players from the Championship that they felt the Blades needed to be targeting this summer.
Chris Wilder’s men are already a step ahead in that sense, having reportedly shown an interest in Brentford forward Ollie Watkins and Nottingham Forest defender Matty Cash, but there’s plenty more fish in the sea.
Should the Blades make a move for Ollie Watkins this summer?
Whether it be a goalkeeper, defender, midfielder or forward, starter or hot prospect there are a number of names who could do a job for us, as shown by the amount of responses that the question got, although some fans left their responses rather vague, I assume to let other people do the legwork.
A striker with pace to further add to our attacking options for the incoming season gives commitment to our team and wants to play for the blades , whoever that will be will be the right signing ⚽️👍⚔️UTB’s

Like the look of that Callum Robinson lad at West Brom 😛

Eze, Benrama & Watkins. I’d probably grab a keeper from there too from one of the relegated sides. Ramsdale, Krul or Foster.

A 15 goal a season striker to go with a 10 goal a season midfielder and a 15 clean sheet keeper – that would do me

Eze above anyone else

I’d like to see Eze, Watkins or Josh King, Foster or Ramsdale, Robinson back and Cash.

Watkins, Cash and Swift would be nice

What about you? What players from the Championship (or maybe even further down the pyramid) do you think that we should be looking to bring in?
