Most teams are set to return for pre-season training at the start of July as they prepare to play their first friendly matches ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.

Middlesbrough will play their first pre-season match against Bishop Aukland on Wednesday July 14, when the Euros has reached its conclusion.

Boro will hope they have made some more signings by then, with manager Neil Warnock looking to add around six or seven new players to his squad before the transfer window concludes at the end of August.

Warnock is keen to sign some new wingers this summer. Jozwiak, 23, made 41 appearances for Derby last season and has played as a winger and wing-back for Poland.

While most players playing at the Euros will be out of Boro’s price range, there are some names which could interest the Teessiders.

Here are a couple of players from the tournament who Boro could target in the coming weeks.

The 26-year-old goalkeeper helped Watford win promotion from the Championship last season. The Hornets are reportedly looking to strengthen in the goalkeeping department, so would a loan deal suit Bachmann?
Despite missing some decent chances, the 25-year-old QPR striker gave Scotland a focal point in the group stages and won 41.5 per cent of his aerial duels, the ninth highest in the tournament so far.
Another towering forward who scored Finland's winner against Denmark. Pohjanpalo, 26, is contracted to Bayer Leverkusen but spent last season on loan at Union Berlin, where he scored six goals in 19 Bundesliga appearances.
Boro were linked with a loan move for the Liverpool defender, 20, last summer. Williams can play across the backline and earned his 13th Wales cap against Italy in the group stages.
Despite Slovakia's negative approach during a 1-0 defeat by Sweden, Koscelnik is an attacking right-back who can deliver some threatening crosses. The 26-year-old, who plays for Czech side FC Slovan Liberec, is third in the entire tournament when it comes to crosses delivered and has the fifth highest accuracy.
One of the players who managed to nullify England at Wembley. The Motherwell defender, 29, was assured in the wing-back role and was unfortunate not to open the scoring when he forced a fine save from Jordan Pickford.
While Turkey failed to deliver at Euro 2020. Karaman, who usually operates as a striker, showed his versatility after starting his side's first two games on the flank, where he was asked to provide defensive cover. The 27-year-old, who likes to run at defenders and is a threat in the air, will be a free agent this summer after his contract at German side Fortuna Düsseldorf expired.
Hennessey has been Wales' second-choice keeper at the Euros but is set to become a free agent this summer when his Crystal Palace contract expires. The 34-year-old has plenty of experience and could provide competition between the sticks.
