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?

Yes

Yes

No

No

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?
