Neil Warnock is looking to add multiple new faces to his Middlesbrough squad before the transfer window slams shut in two days time, but he may have to contend with bids for some of his current players as well.
It is the likes of Marcus Tavernier and Dael Fry who have attracted interest this summer but with the window almost closed, a fresh link to one of Warnock’s key players has emerged.
Midfielder Sam Morsy, who only joined Boro in September 2020 from Wigan Athletic, is a transfer target for League One side Ipswich Town, who are said to have made an enquiry for the Egypt international according to the East Anglian Daily Times.
12 of these 25 Middlesbrough facts are fake – Can you identify them?
The Tractor Boys are managed by Paul Cook and he is a manager that Morsy has played under at both Chesterfield and Wigan Athletic, and with Ipswich having a poor start to the League One season Cook appears to be wanting to strengthen his engine room.
EADT’s report states that Morsy could very well be available for the right price and Boro fans have been reacting to the 29-year-old’s potential departure from the Riverside.
Very strange this. https://t.co/10BfPaRlYe

Aye, I'm sure he hates first team Championship football and can't wait to join a League One side… https://t.co/irOMbfBZQj

Hardly set the place alight since he’s been here if we have a better replacement then do it

I’m not his biggest fan, but we’re short of tough-tackling midfielders as it is…

We need to buy players, not sell them.
