Middlesbrough, Huddersfield Town, Luton Town chasing 20-year-old striker

Middlesbrough, Huddersfield Town and Luton Town are all said to be eyeing up Ipswich Town striker Tyreece Simpson, The Telegraph has claimed (via TWTD).

Middlesbrough, Huddersfield Town and Luton Town will all have ambitions of pushing for promotion again next season.

While Boro missed out on the play-offs, the Terriers and the Hatters did manage to make it, although they both fell short.

Now, it seems the trio are set to do battle on the transfer market, with all three teams mentioned as candidates in the race for Ipswich Town’s young striker Simpson.

The Telegraph (via TWTD) has said that Middlesbrough, Huddersfield Town and Luton Town have all identified the 20-year-old as a ‘major target’. The Tractor Boys value Simpson at around £250,000 as he enters the final 12 months of his contract at Portman Road.

More on Simpson…

A summer exit seems inevitable for Simpson.

A 12-month option was triggered to keep him beyond the end of the 2021/22 campaign but he has handed in a transfer request, opening the door for him to move on and play regular football elsewhere.

The powerful forward thoroughly impressed in a League Two loan spell with Swindon Town in the first half of last season.

Simpson certainly showed that he has a promising future ahead of him, hence why the likes of Middlesbrough, Huddersfield Town and Luton Town are keen. However, he hasn’t tested himself in League One properly yet, let alone the Championship, so maybe he wouldn’t go straight into the first-team if a second-tier switch materialises.

That being said though, with a move away likely, the Championship trio will fancy their chances of striking a deal.
