Cameron Archer has been made available to purchase by Aston Villa, according to David Ornstein, but they will likely accept loan offers as well.
Sheffield United experienced the impactful duo of Archer and Chuba Akpom last season, when the Blades were dominated by Middlesbrough at Bramall Lane. With the funds and squad space available, Sheffield United should be doing all they can to reunite this partnership for the upcoming Premier League campaign.
Archer, 21, has reported interest from various Championship clubs including a return to the Riverside. Last season the forward seemed unstoppable during his loan spell with Michael Carrick’s team. He would make 20 Championship appearances, scoring 11 times and totalling six assists [SofaScore].
With Sheffield United readying an offer for Boro’s Chuba Akpom, it would make sense to also pursue a loan move for Archer, who has been deemed surplus to requirements by Villa.
Unai Emery has just sold an exciting young talent in Aaron Ramsey, he joins Burnley for a fee in the region of £14m plus add-ons, also including a buy-back option.
Bringing in Akpom and (somebody like) Archer would certainly go a long way to replacing the ability of Iliman Ndiaye. You could argue it would even be an improvement.
