Middlesbrough rivalling Leeds United for signing of 3-goal striker

Published

Middlesbrough have entered the race to sign Fenerbahce striker, Michael Frey according to Turkish newspaper, Fotomac. 

The report claims that Boro are prepared to pay in the region of £5m for Frey, who has struggled for form in front of goal this season with the Turkish giants.

Frey has three goals in 14 league appearances for Fenerbahce, although he has been restricted to just five starts in their league campaign.

Boro have recently appointed Jonathan Woodgate as their new manager, after the club opted not to renew Tony Pulis’ deal at the Riverside.

Middlesbrough struggled for consistency in the second-half of last season, which saw them drop out of the play-off places, and they never returned to the top six before the season reached a conclusion.

So it’s set to be an interesting summer ahead at Boro, and with Woodgate in charge, supporters will be hoping for a change in the club’s fortunes.

It is also thought that Leeds United are interested in signing Frey before next season gets underway and they’ll be hoping to fend off interest from Woodgate’s side.

The Whites could benefit from adding depth to their attacking options, with Kemar Roofe and Patrick Bamford being the only recognised striking options available to Marcelo Bielsa.

The Verdict: 

He’s a player in demand, with real quality.

I have my doubts about whether he’s able to adjust to the demands of English football, but sometimes you have to take a punt on a player like this.

It could prove to be a shrewd bit of business for whoever is to land his signature ahead of next season.
