Middlesbrough are one of five clubs who are continuing to track Livingston striker Lyndon Dykes ahead of the January transfer window, according to the Daily Mail.
Boro were linked with the 24-year-old last month, but it is believed that QPR, Hull City and Brentford have joined the likes of Cardiff City in scouting the Australian.
Dykes only joined Livingston from Queen of the South in August but he has impressed observers with his performances in the Scottish Premiership this campaign.
The forward is good in the air, as well as having a decent turn of pace, and the fact that he could be available relatively cheaply has attracted Middlesbrough’s interest.
Jonathan Woodgate’s side have struggled to score goals this season, having managed 19 in 22 games; the worst record in the Championship.
Whether Dykes would be the answer to their problems, it is up for debate. The forward has bagged just six goals in 19 games.
