Sheffield United are being linked with a move for OGC Nice midfielder, Adrien Tameze, as Chris Wilder looks to bolster his squad in January.

The Blades boss is hoping to see his club improve the playing squad in the coming weeks. Along with CEO, Stephen Bettis, Wilder has already got a firm plan in place when it comes to January recruitment.

And after being linked with a number of players already, The Telegraph claim the Blades are keen on landing 25-year-old Cameroonian midfielder, Adrien Tameze.

The Blades are anxious about their midfield options as things stand. With Ollie Norwood, John Fleck, and John Lundstram being regulars, Wilder is conscious of overworking them.

Furthermore, the Blades boss has already admitted he could lose Mo Besic, while Ravel Morrison appears to be on his way to Holland.

Who is Adrien Tameze?

The Nice star is a battling midfielder who is full of running. He could well fill the void if Ollie Norwood is missing. Furthermore, he would also bring energy and battling qualities to the midfield. This is something the Blades might well need as the Premier League takes its toll in 2020.

Tameze is predominantly a player who likes to sit in and break up the play. Indeed, he failed to score last season and has only one to his name this term for the French club.

However, Wilder will be looking for more than just goals in his January recruitment. The United gaffer is keen on adding players of sufficient quality to improve the first XI.

Wilder, though, could face competition for the midfield star. Aston Villa and Southampton are just two of the clubs credited with an interest in Tameze from the same report.

One thing is for sure with this January window though, and that’s that Sheffield United are not messing about when it comes to looking into potential additions.
