Bristol City manager Lee Johnson is considering a move for Middlesbrough striker Britt Assombalonga having missed out on the 26-year-old back in January, with a bid for the £15-million rated Congo international possible in the summer, according to the Bristol Post.
Assombalonga has scored 10 goals in 34 appearances in all competitions so far this season and though manager Tony Pulis was reluctant to let him leave in January, he may have a different view in the summer if still in the Riverside hotseat.
So would Assombalonga be a good signing for the Robins?
“A real coup for the Robins.
“Assombalonga has already proven that he can score goals at this level, and Bristol City could certainly benefit from having a player of his quality in their side.
“They need to do everything they can to sign him in the summer.”
“What a signing this’d be.
“I really rate Assombalonga, he’s deadly in front of goal and lively too.
“Boro should have used him better than they have.
“He’d thrive at Bristol City.”
“He would fit perfectly at Ashton Gate.
“A club where there would be less pressure on him and a style of play to suit his needs.
“Bristol City have it all, and a move to the west county could invigorate Assombalonga’s career, having stalled somewhat at Boro this season.”
