Nottingham Forest emerge favourites for Boro target
Middlesbrough could face a battle from Championship rivals Nottingham Forest for the services of PSG youngster Loic Mbe Soh.
According to French tabloid L'Equipe, the defender has been approached by Forest as they look to place themselves in pole position to sign him.
Loic Mbe Soh is highly rated in Paris and has made a handful of appearances for the French giants. It is understood that his contract expires next summer and he is yet to agree a new deal with the Paris side.
PSG are open to selling him this summer and several clubs in the Championship are said to be keeping tabs on the youngster, with Boro thought to be keen on the youngster. Le Parsien says that Forest manager Sabri Lamouchi is confident of agreeing a deal for Mbe Soh.
Middlesbrough are linked with the defender in the transfer window as manager Neil Warnock is keen on strengthening the defence. Boro have lost a handful of defenders in the summer and are short of depth in central defence.
Mbe Soh is athletic and physically dominating, which are the qualities favoured by Neil Warnock.

Boro would do well to sign him for a cheap fee, as he could easily be worth five times his value in a few seasons.
