Middlesbrough should look to 26-year-old if Adama Traore and Viktor Fischer leave this summer

Published

Scunthorpe turned down a surprise £4 million bid for Dutch winger Kevin van Veen from the Chinese Super League in January, and the Iron may struggle to hold onto their star winger this summer with clubs from around the world sure to show an interest in the player once more.

Van Veen was extremely impressive from the wide position last year, and his goals and creativity helped to fire Scunthorpe to an extremely respectable third placed finish, before a heartbreaking play off defeat to Millwall.

Scoring ten and laying on a further seven goals, van Veen would be an excellent addition to a Championship side, and could jump up a division this summer.

If a Chinese club comes back in for him, the fortunes of the Far East will be too hard to resist and the Dutchman should make a move to Asia.

If he stays in England, then Middlesbrough should really consider a swoop for the winger.

Relegated Boro are set for another season in the Championship after failing to survive the Premier League drop, and will look to the Football League to replace their departing wide men, with Viktor Fischer and Adama Traore looking likely to leave the club this summer.

Van Veen, 26, could be an affordable, yet exciting addition to the side, and boss Garry Monk should look into a deal for the Scunthorpe man.

With an eye for goal and the ability to deliver a ball into the box, van Veen will be keen to try his hand at a higher level, and the prospect of competing at the top of the Championship will be an enticing challenge.
