Last November, reports from Norway explained Arsenal were ‘very interested’ in signing Sander Berge before he joined Sheffield United in the winter 2020 market.
It was also stated the north London club’s interest in the midfielder hasn’t gone away.
The English club sacked Chris Wilder in March and a month before that, Wilder stressed it will be difficult for Sheffield United to retain the 23-year-old, if they are relegated from the Premier League.
Sheffield United’s drop to the Championship has already been confirmed and it’s unlikely the Norway international will continue at Bramall Lane.
Former Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Erik Thorstvedt is now a football expert for TV2, and he is of the belief Berge has a few more weeks left in his Sheffield United career.
When discussing options for Berge, Thorstvedt has hinted a move to Arsenal could be a possibility in the summer, because of one key reason.
“Arsenal’s assistant coach [Albert Stuivenberg] was working in Genk in Belgium when Berge was picked up from Vålerenga, and I know he likes Sander Berge,” Thorstvedt said.
“It is not impossible to get [to] that type of club, and I think that is the order of magnitude he [Berge] wants [for] himself. It will be very exciting to see where he ends up, because he has gained a very good reputation in England.”
After spending close to five months on the sidelines due to an injury, Berge returned to action in his side’s defeat to Tottenham Hotspur earlier this month.
