Bojan: Stoke City star wanted at Middlesbrough

According to the latest reports, Middlesbrough are eyeing a move for Stoke City’s Bojan Krkic in January.

A deal worth £8 million is being mooted to secure the services of the 26 year old forward/winger.

As reported by The Guardian:

“Middlesbrough remain optimistic about their chances of securing Bojan Krkic in an £8m transfer from Stoke City by the end of the month. Although Mark Hughes stated on Friday that he does not want to sell a player disillusioned by a lack of first-team football in the Potteries, Stoke’s manager is believed to be willing to do a deal should he secure his own preferred transfer targets. Much may depend on whether Hughes succeeds in signing Saido Berahino from West Bromwich Albion.

Bojan is unlikely to be part of the Stoke squad for Saturday’s Premier League game against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light. That absence is apparently because of a hip problem but may encourage Aitor Karanka in his pursuit of the former Barcelona attacker.

Middlesbrough’s manager is attracted by Bojan’s ability to play on both flanks and through the middle. Karanka, who is also a big admirer of Hull City’s Robert Snodgrass and retains a real interest in the Scotland forward, believes he can return Bojan, still only 26, to former glories after his failure to properly recover his best form following a serious knee injury sustained in early 2015.”
