Middlesbrough’s target Jelle Vossen has reportedly attracted interest from Dutch club Feyernoord now and the striker was left out of Genk’s season opener at the weekend the gazette reports.

The Belgian is reportedly nearing a move to the Riverside however a potential move could become complicated if Feyernoord were to come in for him.

The striker has scored 85 goals across his 7 year career at Genk making 216 appearances. He has also earned 12 caps for his country since 2009 and also added two goals to those caps.

Last season, Vossen scored 12 goals in 38 games for the Belgian club and now Middlesbrough are very keen to bring in the striker mainly due to the fact that they have been left slightly sparse up front after failing to bring in Danny Graham and also losing Marvin Emnes to Swansea.

With reports that Patrick Bamford looks set to be joining the North Eastern club, Vossen could partner him in strike and could create a deadly combination full of plenty of goals for the club.

Vossen missed out on a trip to Brazil however he could well be on his way to the Riverside as long as Boro can manage to fend off competition from Feyernoord in Holland.

Boro have signed Spanish striker Kike as well and Lukas Jutkiewicz departed to Premier League new boys Burnley so Vossen would be a welcome addition to an ambitious Boro squad.
