Arsenal ‘monitoring’ Sander Berge as they consider reigniting transfer interest

Arsenal are continuing to track Sheffield United’s Sander Berge as they weigh up a summer move.

The Norwegian was linked with the Gunners last term before he made the switch to Bramall Lane.

Mikel Arteta is keen to add another midfielder to his ranks having been credited with interest in the likes of Houseem Aouar and Jorginho.

But with the Blades languishing at the foot of the table Arsenal could make another move for Berge should they go down according to Norwegian newspaper  VG.

The 22-year-old moved to Sheffield for a then club-record £22m in January.

Arsenal may not be alone in pursuing his signature however with Tottenham, Liverpool and Manchester United all thought to be keen.

He said: “Sander was a fantastic signing for us. We want him to grow with us, but we understand that the big clubs are interested when he performs so well.

“That means we, and Sander, are doing something right.

“People judged Sander when we signed him. They expected everything to happen immediately. There were some harsh opinions about him.

“People thought he would not be a success in the Premier League, but he has turned it upside down. Sander has been our best player this season.

“I just have to say it: Sander has been unique. He is the one who has stood out for us.

“He is a complete midfielder. He can play as an 8 and as 6. He can play in different formations.”
