Middlesbrough are one of a number of clubs targeting Aberdeen striker Sam Cosgrove, according to TEAMtalk. Charlton, Derby County and Brentford are also said to be tracking the 22-year-old.
The forward has 15 goals in 17 appearances for the Dons this season, and it appears that Boro boss Jonathan Woodgate has identified him as a potential candidate to help rectify their problems in front of goal.
The Teessiders are now in the relegation zone, after firing yet another blank against Fulham at the weekend, despite the Cottagers being down to ten men for 73 minutes.
The 0-0 draw means Middlesbrough have scored just 11 goals in 14 league games, with three of those coming in the opening day 3-3 draw against Luton Town.
Cosgrove would certainly add much-needed firepower to Boro’s attack, but Aberdeen won’t be letting the striker go without a fight. The striker signed a contract extension last January and it is believed the Scottish club have set an asking price at £2m.
