It looks like being a busy time for Tony Pulis over the next few weeks. He missed out on transfer targets in the summer, but won’t want to endure the same struggles this time around.
Traore only left the Riverside in the summer for a fee of £18m, but he’s fallen out of favour with Nuno Santo and could be available on loan, for the right fee of course.
Pulis is hoping that some swift action and decisive moves will see his side back in the race for an automatic promotion spot, something that has slipped form their grasp recently.
With their recent transfer targets in mind, we look at the Middlesbrough forward line and how it might appear for the first game of February 2019.
