Sheffield United are looking at bringing in midfielder Kalvin Phillips from Leeds United for a fee of £20m in the summer.
The move could depend on whether Sheffield United qualify for Europe, as manager Chris Wilder believes this will boost their chances of being able to sign him.
The Blades boss knows that Phillips will be more attracted to move to Leeds' Yorkshire rivals if they are in either the Champions League or Europa League.
The 24-year-old signed a five-year-deal at Elland Road in September and wants to reach the Premier League with Leeds. However, if they fail to get promoted, then Phillips will be a highly wanted man and could leave in the summer.
After the Blades' draw with Brighton, Wilder said that he is happy that the club are in a healthy position, but they're targeting more than just Premier League safety now.
"We're going to be a Premier League team next season. It's an enormous achievement. But we want more."
Sheffield United's next match sees them come up against Reading in the fifth round of the FA Cup, before hosting Norwich City in the Premier League as their search for European football goes on.
