Sheffield United are in the race for Peterborough United's Jonson Clarke-Harris, according to reports

Sheffield United have been tipped to land £5m-rated Peterborough United striker Jonson Clarke-Harris this summer, as they prepare to chase promotion back to the Premier League.

Clarke-Harris is one of the most prolific strikers in the country right now, and has helped himself to 29 goals in the Posh’s League One season, and has attracted widespread interest as a result.

The 26-year-old was tasked with replacing Ivan Toney at London Road this season, and has filled the deficit admirably, carving out a reputation as one of the league’s most feared strikers.

He’s scored two hat-tricks so far this campaign, and with Peterborough second in the table, could have provided his club with the goals they need to gain automatic promotion.

However, if they don’t get to the Championship, Clarke-Harris could, with Sheffield United credited with an interest in him recently. Former goalkeeper Paddy Kenny has endorsed the move, having played alongside him at Rotherham United.

The Blades have struggled for goals this season, with David McGoldrick currently the top scorer with just seven to his name. United also have Billy Sharp, Lys Mousset, Rhian Brewster and Oli McBurnie as striking options, but with Sharp and McGoldrick well into their 30’s, could be looking for younger blood, with Clarke-Harris fitting the bill nicely.
