Championship high-flyers Middlesbrough are reportedly weighing up a move for Norwich striker Cameron Jerome.

Jerome has found himself playing second fiddle to Dieumerci Mbokani in recent weeks and could be tempted for a move up north if offered regular first-team football.

The Norwich striker has scored three Premier League goals this season, including the opener in the Canaries excellent 2-1 win against Manchester United at Old Trafford and Norwich certainly aren’t in a position of having to sell.

The 29-year-old was instrumental in helping Norwich get back to the top tier of English football last season, scoring 21 goals in all competitions including in the play-off final against Middlesbrough themselves.

However, with Norwich being linked with Premier League names such as Saido Berahino, Dwight Gayle and Steven Naismith so far in the transfer window, Jerome could slip further down the pecking order if he doesn’t move on.

Jerome is the second key player of last season’s squad to be linked with a move away this window after Norwich stalwart John Ruddy has been touted with a switch to Bournemouth.
