Middlesbrough and Sunderland set to do battle for experienced Championship striker



According to The Mirror (reported via The Eastern Daily Press), Cameron Jerome has emerged as a target for Championship duo Sunderland and Middlesbrough.

Sunderland and Middlesbrough, who were both relegated from the Premier League last season, are locked in a battle to snap up the experienced Norwich City forward.

Norwich are reportedly ready to listen to offers for Cameron Jerome, despite his haul of sixteen goals for the Canaries last season.

New Norwich boss Daniel Farke does not have Jerome in his plans and will therefore let him go at the right price to generate funds for another player.

The 30-year-old has plenty of experience in the two top tiers on English football and would provide strength, pace and Championship nous to whichever club ends up signing him.

Sunderland are searching for a new striker after releasing Victor Anichebe and the expected departures of Fabio Borini and Jermain Defoe.

Middlesbrough are also in the hunt for a new striker after Alvaro Negredo’s loan spell ended.

Patrick Bamford and Rudy Gestede are the two forwards on their books but another forward is on their summer wishlist.

Cameron Jerome still has two years remaining on his current Norwich City deal but the Canaries are keen to sell a number of first team players this summer to decrease their wage bill.

Jerome could leave alongside the likes of Steven Naismith and Jonny Howson.
