Nine playmakers from Liverpool, Leicester Sheffield Wednesday and other clubs who Middlesbrough could target this summer
Middlesbrough have plenty of positions they’ll need to address this summer as Neil Warnock looks to strengthen his squad ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.
The Boro boss said at the end of last season he wanted to sign around ‘eight or nine’ new players in the coming months, while several first-team players have also left the Riverside.
Strikers Britt Assombalonga and Ashley Fletcher both left the club following four years on Teesside, while goalkeeper Jordan Archer, Nathaniel Mendez-Laing and Marvin Johnson weren’t offered new deals.
While signing new strikers is the priority for Warnock this summer, the Boro boss will also be hoping to improve his options in attacking midfield.
During the 2020/21 season, Boro struggled when playmaker Marcus Tavernier was out injured and didn’t possess a reliable replacement in the No 10 role.
We’ve picked out nine attacking players who Boro could target this summer – who may be available on loan or as permanent transfers.
