Championship promotion contenders Middlesbrough and West Brom are both interested in PAOK’s striker Aleksandar Prijovic, according to Teamtalk.

West Brom and MIddlesbrough are considering moves for Serbian striker Aleksandar Prijovic, currently playing for Greek side PAOK.

It is believed that the prolific striker has a release clause in his contract at the Greek club, and MIddlesbrough and West Brom are looking to pay that to bring him over to England.

It wouldn’t be his first spell in England if he were to join either West Brom or Middlesbrough. Prijovic joined Derby County as a youngster from the youth academy of Italian side Parma. However, he left for FC Sion without making a single appearance for The Rams, going out on loan to Yeovil Town and Northampton Town during his two years at Pride Park.

The 28-year-old has started the season in impressive fashion, scoring eight goals in 12 Greek Super League games. Prijovic also scored four goals in five games in PAOK’s Champions League Qualifying process. However, his goals weren’t enough to carry them into Europe’s elite competition and have had to settle for the Europa League, where he has scored once.

The Serbian international enjoyed a thoroughly successful 2017/18 campaign, helping PAOK finish in 2nd in the Greek Super League. Prijovic scored 19 goals in 27 League games, along with another six in the Kypello Elledas and four in the Europa League Qualifying process.
