On January 28th, we covered claims made by TuttoMercatWeb stating that Salernitana are ‘surprisingly’ in talks with Sheffield United for Lys Mousset.

The striker has made seven appearances in the league and found the back of the net three times this season. He featured for the Blades when Slaviša Jokanović was in charge at Bramall Lane.

Sheffield United sacked the former Fulham manager and appointed Paul Heckingbottom in November. Since then, the 25-year-old hasn’t made an appearance for the English club.

The attacker’s situation at Sheffield United has drawn attention from elsewhere, including Salernitana.

The latest report from TuttoMercatoWeb now states that after yesterday’s contacts, the Serie A side have ‘put forward their proposal’ to sign the player.

It’s claimed ‘there is an offer’ from the Italian club to take the Frenchman on a loan deal until the end of the season. They will also have a ‘summit’ with Sheffield United today.

TMW state Mousset’s entourage will ‘confront the leaders of the Championship club to get the green light’ for the loan transfer.
