Middlesbrough appear to be wasting little time in the transfer market
After finishing in 10th position this season it’s clear that Neil Warnock is keen to get to work as he looks to build a team that is capable of challenging for promotion next time around.
Signing attackers appears to be the top priority with several strikers already linked with a move to the club, including Luton Town’s James Collins.
But what do we know about Middlesbrough’s interest, and is a move likely to happen? We take a look.
What do we know so far?
Reports from the Northern Echo have reported that Middlesbrough are among the club interested in the Luton Town striker.
The 30-year-old faces an uncertain future with his contract at Kenilworth Road due to expire this summer, meaning that he’ll be available to leave the club on a free transfer.
Collins has had an impressive season after scoring 13 goals for the Hatters, leading to substantial interest in his services.
8 of these 20 players never scored a goal for Middlesbrough – Can you identify them?
Is it likely to happen?
It looks very likely indeed that James Collins will move on, but his destination is yet unclear.
Middlesbrough will definitely be looking for at least one striker this summer and the 30-year-old is bound to be one of the names in consideration.
However with reports now claiming that Cardiff City have agreed a deal for the player, it is starting to look unlikely that a move to Teesside could be on the cards.
