Boro are reportedly interested in the signing of the 22-year-old striker.
Middlesbrough FC have been linked with a move for Birmingham City's £15 million rated striker Che Adams.
Birmingham City have put a £15 million price tag on the player, who has scored 14 goals in 30 games for the Blues this season.
The 22-year-old joined from Sheffield United for £2 million in the 2016 summer transfer window, who have a 20% sell-on clause for Adams.
Birmingham manager Garry Monk is desperate to keep hold of the striker, with interest in the player coming from both Premier League and Championship clubs.
Premier League clubs Burnley and Southampton are interested in the player, with Burnley the likely favourites to secure the signing before the close of the January transfer window today.
