Middlesbrough defender, Dael Fry, has Premier League interest developing in him at this early stage of the summer and is a serious target for Brentford, a source has exclusively revealed to Football League World.
Fry has been impressive under Neil Warnock in the Championship over the last 12 months, making 32 league appearances for Boro and proving to be a consistent figure in the heart of defence.
However, the form of Fry isn’t going unnoticed and the 23-year-old has had a host of Premier League clubs scouting him.
A source has revealed to Football League World that Leeds United, Burnley, Wolves and Southampton have all scouted Fry recently.
However, it has been explained that it is in fact Brentford that have identified the Boro man as a transfer target heading into the summer.
Thomas Frank’s side won the Championship play-off final last month, with Ethan Pinnock and Pontus Jansson at the heart of defence that afternoon as they beat Swansea City 2-0.
The Bees boasted the fourth best defensive record in the Championship last season, having conceded 42 goals across the 46-game season. That was, though, worse than both Norwich City and Watford, who were also promoted to the Premier League.
Fry, then, could arrive as competition for Pinnock and Jansson, with the England youth international managing to stack up 139 appearances for Boro since emerging from the club’s academy.
