Arsenal are reportedly a shock move for Sheffield United star Sander Berge.
Arsenal – along with Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham – were interested in the Norwegian last January, but were beaten to a deal by the Blades.
Berge signed for Chris Wilder’s side for a then club-record £22million fee.
But Norwegian outlet VG claim Arsenal’s interest remains and they are pondering another attempt to sign him.

The report claims Mikel Arteta will make a move for the 22-year-old should the Blades be relegated at the end of the season.
They have just one point from a possible 27 and sit bottom of the table. Do they have any hope?
Berge has shown glimpses of Premier League quality since his arrival from Genk, with Wilder hailing him as a “complete midfielder”.
He said: “Sander was a fantastic signing for us. We want him to grow with us, but we understand that the big clubs are interested when he performs so well.
“That means we, and Sander, are doing something right.
“People judged Sander when we signed him. They expected everything to happen immediately. There were some harsh opinions about him.
“People thought he would not be a success in the Premier League, but he has turned it upside down. Sander has been our best player this season.
“I just have to say it: Sander has been unique. He is the one who has stood out for us.
“He is a complete midfielder. He can play as an 8 and as 6. He can play in different formations.”
