The latest reports from Denmark tease that Sheffield United’s announcement of Anis Slimane could transpire shortly. Danish publication B.T understands that the midfielder is absent from Brøndby’s pre-season squad.
Slimane has faced speculation about his future for the past couple of weeks with Lorient and Galatasaray also chasing the signature of the Tunisian international. Brøndby’s football director Carsten V. Jensen has been open to a sale of the 22-year-old in the past.
B.T have confirmed that Sheffield United have successfully negotiated a fee of around £2.3m for the promising midfielder. In addition, there will be a “hefty resale clause” as part of the deal.
Last season Slimane featured 36 times for Brøndby in all competitions registering four goals and two assists. Additionally, he was part of Tunisia’s 2022 World Cup squad and he started twice, per Transfermarkt.
The Blades have got an interesting prospect on their hands. The signing of a young player for a relatively low sum is smart business for the club, and it could pay dividends in a couple of years down the line. If he doesn’t perform well, it isn’t like United will have blown their money as they have only spent around £2.3m to acquire him. This is an efficient signing for United.
