Chuba Akpom Attracts Interest from Premier League

Chuba Akpom Chuba Akpom

Everton and Crystal Palace are among Premier League clubs interested in signing Middlesbrough striker Chuba Akpom.

Akpom, who is top scorer in the Championship, has less than seven months on his current deal, but Middlesbrough hold a one-year option on renewal.

The striker has scored 13 goals in 19 appearances for Michael Carrick’s side, including eight goals in his last nine games.

Everton and Crystal Palace are in the market for a striker, following their poor run-in front of goal this season.

Both sides are among the lowest scoring teams in the Premier League this season.

Akpom moved to Boro in 2020 for £2.75m and signed a three-year contract, which expires this summer.
