The Blades could let him go in this window to give boss Chris Wilder cash to spend.

Ahmedhodzic, 24, fancies Serie A and is hoping for a deal.

The Bosnian has played 14 times in the Premier League this season and has even captained Sheffield United on four occasions.

Wilder will spend the fee received from selling one of his star players on a keeper and possibly two centre-backs.

The club are haggling over terms on a loan for Mason Holgate.

He is currently at Southampton until the end of the season but SunSport exclusively revealed parent club Everton want to recall him due to a lack of playing time.

The Toffees want most of the defender’s salary paid if he is to switch clubs again this month.

The Blades are also interested in Bournemouth centre-half Chris Mepham, who sees his contract end in 18 months.

He has played just eight matches this season and the Cherries are open to cashing in.

Strasbourg's Gerzino Nyamsi is an alternative but would cost around £6m, with the French side not interested in loaning him to Bramall Lane.

Meanwhile, the Blades are closing in on a £2m deal for Atletico Madrid keeper Ivo Grbic.

The two-time capped Croatian has not played this season as he is Atleti's second choice stopper.
