Sheffield United remain in the hunt for their first league victory of the new SkyBet Championship season. Having lost keeper Aaron Ramsdale in a big-money move to Arsenal, Sheffield United boss Slavisa Jokanovic is looking to recruit in several areas, one of which will be to source a new goalkeeper.

 

In the last few matches, the Blades have fielded Dutch stopper Michael Verrips, and Wes Foderingham, with the latter playing in the 0-0 draw at Luton Town yesterday, though it seems as though neither is seemingly what Jokanovic is looking for. 

 

Earlier this month, the Blades had been linked with a move for AS Roma stopper Robin Olsen, but this move has yet to materialise and is now looking unlikely.

 

United are now linked with 39-year-old five-capped Argentina keeper Willy Caballero, who will turn 40 on 28th September. He is already known in England having played 34 times for Manchester City and Chelsea and is currently without a club.

 

 

It seems a little farfetched that even the Blades would be in the hunt for a near 40-year-old to act as the number one stopper, or are things getting desperate at Bramall Lane. Whilst the transfer deadline is coming to a close, there will be better options out there.
