As reported by the BBC, Middlesbrough are keen on signing PSG striker Jese before the end of the transfer window.
Middlesbrough already have one Spanish striking ace contributing to their season in the form of Alvaro Negredo but are looking to add another in the form of ex-Real Madrid striker Jese.
The key to the transfer could be convincing the forward himself, with PSG unlikely to be resistant to letting him leave.
As quoted by the BBC, Boro boss Aitor Karanka said:
Jese is a player I have worked with. I know how good he is. His next move is important. I hope we can convince him.
His signing is an exciting prospect for Middlesbrough fans, who haven’t had much to cheer about at the Riverside Stadium this season.
Middlesbrough are struggling for goals badly, no side in the Premier League has scored less goals than them this term having netted just 18 times in 22 matches.
Jese is having a tough time in Paris, having failed to settled after a big money move from Real Madrid last summer. As Karanka said though, the Boro manager is well aware of his talents having worked with the 23 year old when both were still at Madrid, Jese as an emerging talent and Karanka as a first team coach.
The Boro boss obviously fancies Jese to be the man that can bang in the goals to keep them up. The former Spanish youth international scored 18 goals in total in his time at Madrid.
With every team at the bottom of the table looking for that extra edge for the run in, this is one signing that could add real quality to Middlesbrough.
