A report from France Football has claimed that Championship pair Middlesbrough and Cardiff City have made contact with French Ligue 2 side over a possible move for striker Enzo Crivelli.
This isn’t the first time time that Middlesbrough have been linked with a move for Caen striker Enzo Crivelli, with links also emerging in the summer transfer window prior to the start of last season.
Now, links between Boro and the 24-year-old have emerged once again, and this time, they have been joined by a second Championship club. Cardiff City – who return to the second tier after their relegation from the Premier League – also hold an interest in Crivelli this summer, as Neil Warnock prepares for life back in the second tier.
The two clubs have contacted Caen over a possible move for the striker this summer and may look to test the French club’s resolve after they were relegation to the French second division at the end of last season.
The 24-year-old French striker has spent his entire career playing in France since coming through the youth academy with Bordeaux. After coming through their academy, Crivelli went on to play 56 times for Bordeaux, scoring seven goals and laying on six assists along the way.
He spent a successful 10-goal loan spell with Bastia before making a permanent move to SCO Angers, where he endured a difficult spell. In 17 games, Crivelli scored one goal before being sent out on loan to Caen, who he went on to join permanently in summer 2018.
But now, after one full season contracted the Caen, Crivelli is attracting interest from new clubs. And, with Middlesbrough and Cardiff reportedly registering an interest, it awaits to be seen if either club lodges a bid for the striker.
