Sheffield United are reportedly interested in signing Todd Cantwell from Norwich City this summer.

Although not mathematically confirmed as yet, Norwich look certain to be relegated from the Premier League this season. They are currently bottom of the table and ten points from safety with only four fixtures remaining.

The Blades were promoted alongside the Canaries after finishing runners-up to them in the Championship in 2018/19. Yet the two sides have taken to life in the top flight very differently, with 30 points and 13 positions currently separating them.

Cantwell has been a positive in what has been a tough campaign, though. The 22-year-old has scored six league goals and provided two assists as part of an impressive crop of youngsters at Carrow Road.

Yet he is perhaps not the only player United should be targeting.

Who else should interest Sheffield United, aside from Cantwell?

Max Aarons

Despite their position, Norwich have been praised for the way they have played this season. Head coach Daniel Farke has precise tactics, which involves giving the full-backs licence to get forwards.

Aarons – who only turned 20 in January – thrives in this role. Which is why it’s easy to see the right-back adapting his game to play as a wing-back for the Blades.

Problem is, other teams are also interested. According to the Sun, this includes Tottenham Hotspur – although apparently Jose Mourinho has concerns about 5ft 10in Aarons being too short.

Ben Godfrey

Considering the Canaries have the worst defensive record in the division, it may seem bizarre to include a centre-back.

Yet Godfrey, like Aarons, has a lot to offer and could thrive under Chris Wilder. The 22-year-old is also said to be attracting interest from some big clubs as well.

Sky Sports reports Arsenal, Liverpool and Spurs are all keen, while Bundesliga duo Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig are also keeping tabs.

Jamal Lewis

Another from the impressive crop of young defenders in Norfolk and like Aarons, another from the club’s academy.

Lewis is a left-back who also likes to attack and could certainly serve as competition to Enda Stevens – who is eight years his senior.

The 22-year-old is probably the most realistic target for United as well, with talkSPORT claiming Crystal Palace and Leicester City would be the competition for his signature.
