Middlesbrough attacker Marcus Tavernier has developed as a January transfer target for Premier League giants Arsenal and Everton, according to a story.
The England Under-19s international is believed to have been observed up close by scouts of many top-flight teams during matches against the Faroe Islands, Iceland and Bulgaria over the past week.
Tavernier could now be on his way out of the Riverside Stadium, as the Daily Mail claims that the left-sided player is closely observed by Arsenal and Everton with an eye on a mid-season offer, while Bournemouth and Championship team Aston Villa have also been charged with interest.
In reply, Boro are ready to trigger the option of a two-year expansion in the 18-year-old’s deal to probably drive up his transfer valuation.
A Middlesbrough academy player, Tavernier netted the winner against Sunderland earlier this month and had also scored against Bournemouth in the EFL Cup.
Meanwhile, Arsenal midfield target Marouane Fellaini linked with a move to Turkish side Galatasaray as the Belgian star refusing to sign a deal at Old Trafford.
