Sheffield United could face a battle to keep hold of Jayden Bogle this summer, amid reports Norwich City are keen on the full-back.
According to the Daily Mail, the Canaries are eyeing up Bogle as a potnetial replacement for Max Aarons. The Norwich star is being tipped for a big money move away from Carrow Road. Indeed, Arsenal are said to be among the clubs keen on the £30m-rated flyer.
Bogle only signed for United last summer. He arrived at the club in a double deal which saw fellow full-back, Max Lowe, also join the Blades.
The former Derby man made an immediate impression, too. He scored a fine goal at Brighton, before scoring against Bristol Rovers in the FA Cup, and netting again against West Brom at Bramall Lane.
However, he’s since been in and out of the team a bit. George Baldock has reclaimed the regular right wing-back slot, with the Blades going for experience and balance under Paul Heckingbottom.
United are likely to want to rebuff any offers for Bogle. He is seen as one of the bright young talents at The Lane. And in fairness, if Norwich are demanding £30m for Aarons, then United will be within their rights to ramp up the asking price for Bogle.

There’s no point buying a young player, who knows the Championship, to then sell him a year later when we end up in that division.
Bogle flew at Derby in the second tier and he’s every chance of ousting George Baldock. Further, Baldock could even leave, allowing Bogle the freedom of the right side with young starlet, Femi Seriki, as back up.
In a nutshell, there are other players in this Sheffield United squad who should go ahead of Bogle. For now, at least, he should stay put and learn his craft under Slavisa Jokanovic.
