Aston Villa Striker Rudy Gestede Linked With Middlesbrough Move
Reports have emerged claiming that Middlesbrough manager Aitor Karanka was keeping his cards close to his chest regarding the club’s reported pursuit of Rudy Gestede.
Reports suggest that the Benin international is on Teesside to complete a £6million transfer from Aston Villa but Karanka failed to confirm nor deny the speculation.
“I want to finish the transfer market with a better squad than we have now and we have one month,” he said after Boro’s drab 0-0 draw with Leicester City on Monday.
“I think for us it’s about keeping going. We know it’s going to be difficult to win games because we can’t forget we were in the Championship last season.
“When we take our chances we will win games.”
Boro are in desperate need for some attacking quality this month as they have scored just 17 goals in 20 Premier League games.
