Middlesbrough are still interested in a deal for Ipswich Town striker Martyn Waghorn, according to reports.
Waghorn, who netted 16 times for the Tractor Boys last season, is in high-demand this summer after his productive season in front of goal.
Sheffield United were interested in a move for the ex-Sunderland striker and were reported to have launched a bid, but later withdrew their interest after hearing of Ipswich's asking price.
RUMOURS: Middlesbrough could see two key players leave before the window slams shut
Paul Hurst's side are thought to be looking for a fee of £8m to £10m for their prize asset, but that price tag does not look to have deterred Middlesbrough.
The Teesside Gazette are reporting that Tony Pulis remains interested in a deal - but he will face competition if a deal is to be done.
Derby County are thought to be the front-runners for Waghorn's signature with reports yesterday even suggesting that a deal had already been agreed.
