Sander Berge drops Arsenal transfer hint as midfielder looks set for £35m Sheffield United exit after relegation

SHEFFIELD UNITED midfielder Sander Berge has dropped a hint regarding his future amid interest from Arsenal.

The Norway international, 23, is expected to depart Bramall Lane in the summer following the Blades' relegation to the Championship.

Berge – who joined the Yorskshire outfit from Genk in January 2020 for a club-record £22million fee – has been limited to just 15 Premier League appearances this season.

Surgery on his hamstring in December saw him ruled out of action until earlier this month where he made his comeback in the 4-0 defeat against Tottenham.

Despite his injury, a number of clubs have been linked with signing him, including Arsenal, who have reportedly had a £17.2m bid rejected.

United are holding out for his £35m relegation release clause fee, but it has been claimed that he would welcome a move to the Emirates.

Meanwhile have stated that Berge would be particularly keen on joining the Gunners should they turn his compatriot Martin Odegaard's loan spell from Real Madrid into a permanent stay.

And Berge has fuelled speculation that he could link up with Mikel Arteta's side after posting a picture of him with Odegaard on his Instagram story on Monday night.

Berge shared a photo of the two enjoying a meal out, with Arsenal fans left convinced they was discussing potential moves to the club.

One supporter tweeted: "Odegaard and sander Berge discussing where they’ll be playing next season."
