Boro linked with striker move

Boro linked with striker move

Middlesbrough are being linked with a move for Nottingham Forest striker Britt Assombalonga.

The 24-year-old scored fourteen times in 33 appearances to eventually finish as Forest's leading marksman last season. Those included a vital double against Ipswich Town on the final day ensuring them relegation survival.

Assombalonga only signed a new five-year deal at the City Ground last summer after originally arriving from Peterborough United in August 2014. But he's been the subject of transfer speculation before according to the Nottingham Post, with Norwich City having an earlier bid turned down.

Boro's new boss Garry Monk already conceded his inherited squad needed "freshening up a bit" following relegation last term.

Middlesbrough twice came from behind to earn themselves a point at Barnsley after goals from Martin Braithwaite and Britt Assombalonga.

A frantic start to the game witnessed three changes of scoreline inside ten minutes, with Ashley Fletcher responsible for an own-goal against his former club and Cameron McGeehan netting on his home debut.

Summer recruit Braithwaite managed to respond in between those and Boro's record signing Assombalonga later equalised on the hour.
