Middlesbrough are reportedly monitoring Rangers winger Jordan Jones ahead of the January window, with the Scottish club thought to value the player at around £800,000.
Boro were one of a number of Championship clubs thought to have been interested in signing the 26-year-old in the summer window, with Blackburn Rovers and Stoke City also linked, but he remains at Ibrox.
According to Football Insider, the Riverside outfit are set to reignite their interest in Jones with the Northern Irishman’s future with the Gers looking uncertain.
The winger is currently serving a seven-game ban and previous reports have indicated that the Scottish club are keen to cash in on Jones in January, though they don’t expect to get more than £800,000 for him.
Jones has featured just four times for Steven Gerrard’s side this season, continuing what has been a disappointing spell for him since arriving at the club from Kilmarnock last summer.
In total, the winger has made 19 appearances for the Gers, scoring once and adding two assists.
Boro seem likely to be on the lookout for attacking reinforcements as no side in the top half of the table has scored fewer goals than them this term.
