Middlesbrough and Nottingham Forest have both made enquiries for Sheffield United striker Billy Sharp, according to Sky Sports News.
The TV channel report the Blades are “open to offers” for their club captain with the forward having struggled for game time since Chris Wilder’s side were promoted to the Premier League.
Sharp, who is also reportedly being tracked by Celtic, has started just one league game this season, with his only goal coming in the opening day draw against Bournemouth.
The 33-year-old is, though, a prolific goalscorer at Championship level, having scored 114 goals in 332 appearances in the second tier.
Middlesbrough manager Jonathan Woodgate is keen to add to his striking options this month, with Boro having scored just 26 goals in 26 league games.
Sky do say, however, that Sharp’s arrival could precipitate the departure of Britt Assombalonga from the Riverside Stadium. The Congolese international has been linked with Aston Villa in recent days.
