Wolverhampton Wanderers are one of four Premier League clubs to have reportedly made their interest known to Championship side Middlesbrough over their up-and-coming midfielder Marcus Tavernier – and Wolves fans have responded.
Tavernier, 21, has starred once again for Middlesbrough this season after being given a central berth by manager Neil Warnock. He had previously been used on the flanks, and given the odd chance in central midfield.
But this season he has become a regular in the middle of the park – and it has caught the attention of Premier League clubs. Certainly, the fact he made his 100th senior appearance for Boro over the weekend will also have been deemed as impressive.
TeamTalk say Boro have been informed by Everton, Wolves and Leicester that they are intent on signing Tavernier – while Leeds United are keeping tabs on the situation. It is unclear what kind of price Boro rate the versatile midfielder at.
Wolves have obviously had success buying from the Teesside club in the recent past. While Adama Traore is not performing at his best at this moment in time, he has certainly proved a success since he moved down south from the north east.
Wolves supporters have reacted on Twitter to the reported news that their club are interested in signing the younger brother of Rangers captain James Tavernier. Many think he would be a good addition to a Wolves side lacking in midfield options.
Middlesbrough fans were pretty annoyed when we took Traore off them… I could imagine them being really annoyed if we came back for this lad.
