Sheffield United could face a massive task if they wish to land Mady Camara, with both Arsenal and AC Milan now in the frame for the midfielder.
According to the Daily Star, both the Gunners and the Rossoneri are keen on the Olympiakos man.
Camara has been one of the standout performers for the Greek giants this season. A number of impressive performances – including one at Arsenal in the Europa League – have caught the eye.
Indeed, the Blades were linked with a move for Camara back in January. However, the club opted to sign Sander Berge instead and seemingly moved away from any deal for the 23-year-old.

A deal that looks dead in the water for Sheffield United
Despite talk in January, this one never really progressed and it doesn’t look like United will get a chance to pursue it further either.
Both Arsenal and Milan can blow the Blades out of the water financially. Furthermore, Camara’s agent has also stated his player wants to move to ‘fight for titles’. Whether Camara would consider Bramall Lane that place is a big question mark indeed.
Still, it is good to see the Blades even being mentioned for such talent. The midfielder has been excellent this season and contributed heavily to the Greek side’s successes.
While United might miss out this time, they’ll be back for other players in the summer. Chris Wilder will not be deterred and will no doubt have a raft of targets he’s keen to explore further.
