According to German outlet Bild, Middlesbrough could be looking at Borussia Dortmund’s centre back Neven Subotic in the January transfer window.
The news has been greeted by our local Boro fans here in the Transfer Tavern who think that signing players with Subotic’s kind of pedigree is the next step they need to take, if they are to progress as a club.
The Teesiders have impressed a fair deal this season for the way they have competed in most games and, certainly, with the likes of Alvaro Negredo around, they clearly want to push themselves up as far as possible.
The signing of Subotic could allow them to do this, then, and, when you look at it he’s certainly got the experience to be a hit.
Whilst he’s not been in the Dortmund side in recent times he was once one of their key defenders as they became one of the best sides in Europe and so, whilst he’ll have aged a bit, he’ll still have that defensive nous that made him and Mats Hummels, at the time, so good.
It could be a pivotal move, then, in the fight against relegation.
