Transfer report: Middlesbrough join Aston Villa and West Brom in race for ‘Belgian Jamie Vardy’

Middlesbrough have joined Aston Villa and West Brom in the race for Gent star Laurent Depoitre.

The striker has scored 15 goals in Belgium this season and is expected to be on the move this summer.

Aston Villa and West Brom are interested in the 27-year-old, while Tottenham are also monitoring the situation.

However, according to Belgian news outlet HLN, Middlesbrough are the latest side to join the race for the Belgium international.

The Championship club are determined to bolster their attacking options in the summer, providing they gain promotion to the Premier League.

And they are admirers of Depoitre, who has compared to Jamie Vardy in his homeland having risen from the lower leagues to international football.
