The Middlesbrough fans who are gathered at the bar in The Transfer Tavern this evening are discussing reports that the club could be set to add an experienced striker to their ranks.
According to reports on Clubcall the newly promoted Premier League side could be set to sign Robin Van Persie from Fenerbahce.
Reports suggest that the former Arsenal and Man United man has visited the club’s training ground and is now set to sit down for talks with the club.
The striker has made it clear that he would like to leave Turkey this summer after becoming unsettled with life at Fenerbahce.
Like any promoted manager, Aitor Karanka will be keen to add real quality to his side. With experience the Dutchman could be just the tonic his side needs as they get set for their first Premier League campaign for many years.
The 33-year-old only left England last summer and scored 16 goals last season in Turkey, sources close to the club revealed that any move is up in the air at present.
