Boro eye loan deal for striker Kieffer Moore from Bournemouth
Although Boro are concentrating on defensive reinforcements, they are closely monitoring Kieffer Moore's situation despite the competition from other Championship clubs.
According to Tom Barclay, The Sun senior football writer, Boro are showing an interest in Bournemouth striker Kieffer Moore.
The news of Moore's availability has piqued the interest of several Championship clubs, and Boro have also thrown their hat into the ring. Although their main priority lies in strengthening in defensive, the club is tentatively interested in securing the striker's services, most likely on a loan basis.
The decision by Bournemouth to let Moore leave during the current transfer window has prompted a number of Championship clubs to move forward, including Cardiff City, who appear determined to secure Moore's signature.
The 31-year-old Welsh international has been largely unused by Cherries chief Andoni Iraola during his tenure in charge.
During the current campaign, the forward has only started one game, which was in the League Cup, and Dominic Solanke has emerged at the Vitality as the undisputed first-choice centre-forward at the club.
The likes of Leeds, Ipswich, West Brom, Birmingham and Sunderland are all interested in bringing in a forward in the transfer window and will be aware of Moore's situation at Bournemouth.

Despite his wages of around £40,000 a week, Moore is more likely to take a loan to the second tier of English football in January.
