Middlesbrough target West Brom linked Ligue 2 striker

Boro have reportedly joined the race for the Ligue 2 forward, who scored 15 goals across all competitions last season.

Toulouse striker Rhys Healey is attracting the interest of a host of clubs, including Blackburn Rovers, Middlesbrough, Sheffield United, and West Brom.

The 26-year-old signed for Toulouse from MK Dons after playing 42 times, where he scored 21 goals. His time at the French side has been fruitful so far, with 15 goals and one assist in 35 matches across all competitions.

Healey has a deal with the Ligue 2 side until 2023, and it will take a substantial bid for the club to allow him to go in the summer transfer window, considering how influential he can be in front goal.

Toulouse lost in the Ligue 1 playoff on away goal to Nantes at the end of the just-concluded season, and they see Healey as an important part of the team.

Middlesbrough's chances of signing the forward lies in the type of bid they can make for him. If Neil Warnock can prepare an attractive deal, Healey could be playing at the Riverside Stadium next season.
