Premier League clubs express an interest in Boro's £15 million striker

Having been linked with a £10 million move for the striker earlier this week, Blackburn Rovers have been joined by Premier League clubs in the race to sign Britt Assombalonga in the final days of the January transfer window.

Brighton and Crystal Palace have both shown an interest in the striker, with Crystal Palace coming close to signing the 26 year-old earlier in the transfer window in a deal that would have seen Connor Wickham head in the opposite direction.

Palace are reportedly keen to find a striker, having struggled to find a consistent goal scorer in the Premier League, with the Eagles interested in handing Britt Assombalonga his first Premier League opportunity of his career.

Boro would be looking to recoup the club-record fee of £15 million paid to Nottingham Forest in the 2017 summer transfer window, however based on his high wages, could be open to an offer around the £10 million mark.

Championship rivals Bristol City and Aston Villa are also reportedly keen on the DR Congo striker, who is believed to be eager to move further south.

Bristol City would likely have to double their current transfer record of £5.3 million they paid SCO Angers for Famara Diedhiou in June 2017 to secure the signing of Assombalonga in the January transfer window.
