According to The Daily Record (via The Hartlepool Mail), Hibernian striker Florian Kamberi is attracting attention from three Championship clubs.

Middlesbrough, Brentford and Swansea are the three clubs interested, with Kamberi reportedly valued at around £2 million, it could be great value for money. He is a Switzerland under-21 international, and at just 24-years old, he could be a good investment with his small price tag.

The forward has enjoyed a successful spell in Scotland since originally signing for Hibs on loan from Swiss side Grasshopper in 2018.

Kamberi scored nine goals in 14 games in his first season in the SPL, and Hibs decided to take up the offer to make the deal permanent the following season. His second season wasn’t as fruitful, scoring eight goals in 33 games.

All three clubs are in the market for a striker, with Middlesbrough’s Britt Assombalonga, Swansea’s Oli McBurnie and Brentford’s Neal Maupay all linked with moves away this transfer window. All would demand rather large transfer fees in excess of £10 million.

Assombalonga has been rumoured to be nearing a move to Scottish giants Celtic, whereas McBurnie and Maupay have been linked to clubs in the Premier League. Sheffield United remain keen on McBurnie, whereas West Ham and Aston Villa are interested in Brentford’s 25-goal French striker.

As well as the Championship trio, League One side Portsmouth were also keen on Kamberi, however, they were not willing to meet the valuation set by Hibernian of £2 million, meaning it is now a three horse race for the Swiss’ signature.
