Former Everton star Michael Ball believes a move to sign Sander Berge could be a shrewd one for the Toffees.
The club have been linked with a potential swoop to sign the defensive midfielder after the Blades were relegated to the Championship.
Berge enjoyed a breakthrough season in the Premier League when Sheffield United finished ninth, impressing in his 14 appearances.
He has struggled with injuries, however, and missed a large chunk of the 2020/21 season as the Blades finished rock-bottom.
Since their return to the Championship, Berge has played twice, and Ball believes he was quite simply the best player on the pitch when they took on Birmingham City, even though they lost the game 1-0.
Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, Ball made the claim that he is too good for the second-tier, saying: “It always seems to be the same clubs linked to the same players, I think Arsenal are interested in him again and also Everton but I watched his game last week and he was head and shoulders the best player on the pitch.
“He probably is too good for the Championship.”
Berge has made a total of 34 appearances for the Blades and has also won 24 caps for Norway. He is valued at £16.2m by Transfermarkt.
