Middlesbrough are rivalling Brentford to the potential signing of Wolves defender Oskar Buur according to Birmingham Live.
It is also claimed that Belgian side Royal Antwerp and FC Volendam in Holland are also keen on a deal to land the defender’s signature.
Buur made his Premier League debut for Wolves last month, but it appears as though is short-term future could lie away from Nuno Espírito Santo’s side.
The right-back has been pushed further down the pecking order with Wolves recently though, with the club signing both Nelson Semedo and Ki-Jana Hoever.
Nuno Espírito Santo is reportedly willing to send the youngster out on loan before the summer transfer window reaches a conclusion, as he looks to further his development in senior football.
Middlesbrough are currently sat 18th in the Championship table under the management of Neil Warnock, and the Boro boss will be hoping he can add to his squad in the near future.
Whilst Brentford are sat tenth in the second-tier standings, and will be hoping they can win promotion into the Premier League this season, after losing out to Fulham in the play-off final in the 2019/20 campaign.
Buur has recently spoken out on his future, and is keen to further his development with regular game time at the earliest of opportunities.
“I’ve been in a Premier League first-team and improved, and learned a lot from the people here, now I want to go forward and get regular playing time and experience to improve, and help another team achieve their aims.
“I want to be at a club where I can play regularly at the top level and contribute. It’s been good so far, but now I think the age I am, and where I am in my career, I need to play and I’m looking forward to it.”

This could be a smart signing by Boro or Brentford.
Buur doesn’t have a considerable amount of experience in senior football in England, so it makes sense for him to be loaned out by Wolves this season.
He’s not going to be anywhere near the starting XI for them, so it’s good to see the club looking at furthering his development out on loan.
I can see him getting more game time with Middlesbrough, rather than Brentford, and it’ll be interesting to see whether Neil Warnock’s side are to push ahead with their interest in landing his signature in the near future.
