Sheffield United have made an offer thought to be around £5million for Martyn Waghorn, according to Sports Mole.

Sheffield United have reportedly increased their efforts to sign Ipswich Town striker Waghorn.

Waghorn scored 16 times for Ipswich Town last season in the Sky Bet Championship leading to interest in the services of the goalscorer.

Sheffield who broke their club transfer record fee when they signed John Egan from Brentford on Thursday are keen to do same to bring Waghorn to Bramall lane.

The Blades have made a club record £5million offer to Ipswich for their star striker, according to multiple reports in the papers.

Sheffield are keen to improve their squad this summer and the club have money to spend after the departure of David Brooks to Premier League side Bournemouth.

Martyn Waghorn’s deal with Ipswich Town expires next summer with the club still undecided on whether to cash in on him or offer him a new deal.
