‘Another transfer shocker’, ‘Waste of money’ – Plenty of Middlesbrough fans respond to major transfer update regarding 5-goal man

Middlesbrough’s need for new strikers this summer could be about to get even more intense with the club making a decision on Chuba Akpom’s future.

Reports from Teamtalk have claimed that the Teessiders have told the 25-year-old that he’ll be able to leave the club this summer.

Akpom only arrived at the club last summer after arriving from Greek side PAOK for an undisclosed fee, thought to be in the region of £3million.

Despite Neil Warnock claiming that Akpom was ‘his number one choice’ and that he ‘wanted him for a long time’, the striker has come in for criticism from the 72-year-old over the course of the campaign.

It’s been far from an ideal campaign for the former Arsenal youngster, with Akpom scoring just five times in all competitions this term, but while many expected him to become a more prominent figure next season, it now seems that his days at the club may be numbered.

As you’d expect, the report has certainly garnered a strong reaction from Middlesbrough supporters with many unhappy with Warnock and the recruitment team, claiming that they must take some responsibility for the player failing to be a success.

Here’s what some have had to say.
