Liverpool, Everton, and West Ham United are all reportedly tracking Sheffield United striker Daniel Jebbison, who is currently out on loan at Burton Albion.
According to an exclusive report from TEAMtalk, Sheffield United striker Daniel Jebbison could be set to cut short his loan spell at Burton Albion in the January transfer window amidst interest from Premier League clubs Liverpool, Everton and West Ham United.
Jebbison started at the ANB Futbol Academy before making his way to Sheffield United’s youth setup in the summer of 2018. He made his first-team debut for the Blades in the Premier League last season and went on to feature five more times, scoring one goal, before leaving for Burton Albion on loan in the summer.
Having snubbed interest from clubs in the top-flight to join the League One outfit, the 18-year-old has impressed with the Brewers, bagging six goals in 14 games across all competitions. While he is enjoying life under manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, the report claims that Sheffield United might consider recalling him in January with their current options in the No. 9 role not working out well.
However, it is further claimed that once recalled, Jebbison’s future might not even be at Bramall Lane as clubs from the top-flight are circling him, with Liverpool, Everton and West Ham United all keeping tabs on the teenage prodigy.
Liverpool have been aggressively recruiting to strengthen their youth ranks in the recent transfer window, as they look to create a supply line of up and coming talents at the club who can succeed at the first-team level. With the likes of Curtis Jones, Harvey Elliott, and more recently, Tyler Morton making an impact with the senior team, Anfield has become an appealing venue for youngsters as well.
As for Everton, the Toffees are lacking a potent backup option for star striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin, with Salomon Rondon struggling in his first season at Goodison Park. So, they might be looking at Jebbison as an option to slot into the first-team squad right away and provide another alternative in the No. 9 role for manager Rafael Benitez.
West Ham United are also on the lookout for a new striker, considering that they do not have an alternative for first-choice centre-forward Michail Antonio. And while Jebbison might not be the most accomplished name going around, David Moyes can get the best out of the teenage prospect and turn him into a valuable member of the team.
Apart from the trio of Premier League clubs, Barcelona are also interested in Jebbison, while Brighton & Hove Albion, Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig have also been tracking him. For now, the 18-year-old remains at Burton Albion, and it remains to be seen if Sheffield United recall him in January before offloading him to a bigger club.
