According to HITC Sport, Middlesbrough have lodged another bid for West Ham United goalkeeper Darren Randolph.
Middlesbrough are desperate to bring Darren Randolph to the Riverside as their new goalkeeper this summer.
Following the departures of two senior goalkeepers, this is a priority position that Garry Monk wishes to address.
Middlesbrough’s first choice stopper in the Premier League last season was Victor Valdes but the former Manchester United and Barcelona man has had his contract cancelled rather than staying with Boro in the Championship.
Deputy options Brad Guzan has returned to the United States.
This leaves veteran goalkeeper Dimi Konstantopoulos (who recently penned a new one year deal), impressive youngster Connor Ripley and outcast Tomas Mejias as Boro’s options.
Garry Monk has identified Darren Randolph as the ideal man to solve his goalkeeper crisis.
West Ham recently snapped up Joe Hart on a season-long loan deal from Manchester City.
With Randolph losing his starting spot to Adrian towards the end of last season, the Republic of Ireland international has now potentially slipped down to third choice in East London, which is not ideal with the World Cup coming up next year.
Boro have seen a £3.5m bid rejected for the 30-year-old, according to reliable football journalist Dean Jones, but HITC Sport are claiming that they have returned with an improved offer.
Middlesbrough are now stepping up their chase for West Ham outcast Darren Randolph.
