Transfer gossip, Tuesday: Sheffield United striker search | Swans eye Sheffield Wednesday star | Spanish club wants Leeds United forward

Nugent joined Derby County from Middlesbrough in January, 2017 for £2.5m and has a year left on his Rams contract.

He has scored 15 goals in 54 league appearances for Derby and the 33-year-old could be the man Chris Wilder turns his attention to if Ipswich reject the bid for Waghorn.

The Blades could face a familiar foe in the opening game of the season as opponents Swansea are said to be eyeing a move for Sheffield Wednesday’s Argentinian forward Fernando Forestieri, 28.

Derby County's David Nugent: Blades interest.

Sunderland are waiting to see if the Blades do strengthen their attacking options before considering a move for Billy Sharp.

The Black Cats remain interested in Bradford City striker Charlie Wyke, despite him taking a knock in a pre-season friendly which is set to rule him out of the start of the season.

Bolton remain favourites to land the 25-year-old target man for around £750,000.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has set his sights on former Blades and Hull City central defender Harry Maguire, England’s outstanding player at the World Cup.

Fernando Forestieri: Wanted by Swansea.

The Old Trafford chief hopes a £65m bid will persuade Leicester City to sell the 25-year-old.

Hull City are hoping that Brighton’s Oliver Norwood rejects a £1.5m move to Fulham, where he was on loan last season, and joins their midfield instead.

Valencia are reported to be lining up an £8m bid for Leeds United striker Samuel Saiz, 27, who signed last summer from Huesca for £3m.

Iceland and Maccabi Tel Aviv striker Vidar Orn Kjartansson remains on Middlesbrough’s wanted list, though West Brom and QPR remain interested.
