Sheffield United are reportedly interested in signing Bayern Munich striker, Leon Dajaku.

According to journalist Ed Aarons, who writes for The Guardian, the Blades are set to battle with Swansea to try and sign the attacker, who is said to be highly-rated in Germany.

The 19-year-old had rifled in the goals for Stuttgart’s youth teams prior to sealing a move to Bayern last summer, where it was reported he signed a four-year deal with the European champions.

A move for Dajaku would come as something out of the blue from the Blades, who have been linked with targets closer to home, such as Rhian Brewster from Liverpool.

However, Chris Wilder is known for not being afraid to take a punt. Indeed, he signed Sander Berge for big-money in January and also completed loan moves for Panos Retsos and Richairo Zivkovic, although both loan players fell foul to the global pandemic and situation surrounding that.

Dajaku has over 40 goals at youth level already and is already on the road to the national team having been selected for the Germany under-20s.

Chris Wilder seems to love keeping the press on their toes and this one could come out of nowhere.

He’ll have done his homework and despite the raft of names being linked with a move to Bramall Lane, it would be no surprise to see the Blades boss bring in a relative unknown.

The potential appears to be there with Dajaku. Although, we won’t pretend to know a whole lot about him given he hasn’t exactly featured prominently for the Bayern first-team as yet. He has, however, made his Bayern debut, appearing twice last season off the bench.

This one could be a case of ‘wait and see’ but it’s certainly a new name to get excited about for now.
