Sheffield United target Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster

Sheffield United are showing strong interest in Ben Foster.

According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Sheffield United are targeting Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster.

Watford spent 2.8 million euros to sign the England international from West Bromwich Albion in the summer of 2018.

The 36-year-old has a valid contract with Watford until June 2020.

Since his arrival from West Bromwich Albion, Foster has conceded 183 goals and provided 33 clean sheets in 132 games for Watford.

The goalkeeper’s contract at Watford is about to expire and a number of clubs are said to be monitoring his situation, with Sheffield United showing the most concrete interest in an attempt to lure the player to their team.

Chris Wilder wants to sign a new goalkeeper and Foster is one of the names at the top of his wishlist.

Foster is a long-term target of Sheffield United and could be a decent addition for Chris Wilder’s side.

According to Tribalfootball, “Sheffield United are eyeing Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster. The Sun says Sheffield United are huge fans of the former England cap, who is starring for Watford despite their troubles this season. And Foster, 36, could be snapped up at the end of the season if the Hornets plunge out of the top flight and have to cut costs. The veteran stopper has emerged as the leading target for Blades, whose early-season form has already suggested they will be well away from the drop zone. Boss Chris Wilder has been relying on Dean Henderson, on loan from Manchester United. But the fear is the fee to take him permanently will be out of reach for them in the summer.”


The 36-year-old would be a very good addition for Sheffield United and they can afford him as well.

Sheffield United fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club.

How strong that interest is and whether Sheffield United will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
