Asking far too much.

That appeared to be the message that Sheffield United fans wanted to send out when it came to their latest

According to a report from Sky Sports, Brentford are looking for £25m in order to split from one of their main men from this past season Ollie Watkins, a price that could ‘dissuade’ the Blades from making a move.

It certainly wouldn’t be the first time we’ve raided the Championship for a goalscorer and paid a decent whack for the privilege, having only signed Oli McBurnie last summer for £20m from Swansea City. And having received plenty in terms of prize money this season, I don’t think an extra £5m is necessarily too far out of our reach, but given what time of year it is, believe what you want to believe.

Should the Blades make a move for Ollie Watkins this summer?





However, Blades fans on social media seemed to think that the price was way too high for us to be considering making a move, saying that there were better, cheaper options available.

What about you? Do you think we should make a £25m bid for Watkins?
