Fulham are reportedly in talks over a deal for Sheffield United midfielder Sander Berge, who’s recently been linked as a Chelsea target.

According to Sky Sports journalist Kaveh Solhekol on Twitter, Premier League side Fulham are in discussions to sign the 24-year-old midfielder.

Apparently, there’s talks ongoing over a potential £20million move to Craven Cottage.

“Fulham in talks to sign Norway midfielder Sander Berge from Sheffield United for £20m plus add ons,” Kaveh Solhekol wrote on Twitter.

Berge, who’s had a season of Premier League football in the past, is currently part of a Sheffield United side that are doing extremely well in the Championship.

The Blades look a very good bet to earn promotion this year, but Fulham are trying to steal one of their high-profile individuals mid-season.

Chelsea fans will be intrigued by the Fulham development after recent speculation that the Norway international is on the Blues radar this month.

Journalist Simon Phillips claimed a couple of days ago that Chelsea could yet to decide a late move for Berge in the January transfer window.

Despite being an impressive player that belongs at Premier League level again, Berge wouldn’t be the kind of signing at Chelsea that would massively change things.

Graham Potter’s side could do with an extra body in the centre of the park to improve the side, but all the focus right now from supporters is towards Benfica’s Enzo Fernandez.

TyC Sports journalist Cesar Luis Merlo reported on Twitter today that Chelsea have made an offer worth around €120million (£106million) for 22-year-old Benfica midfielder Fernandez.
