Middlesbrough are interested in signing Norwich City striker Cameron Jerome, report The Times.

Jerome is one of three top players Norwich have put up for sale, the paper report, alongside Nathan Redmond and Robbie Brady.

The striker netted 18 goals in the Championship two seasons ago for the Canaries, and so selling him could backfire, as they get ready for another promotion campaign.

Middlesbrough have just been promoted back to the Premier League, and while they hold interest in Jerome, Norwich are yet to receive a bid.

Despite his excellent Championship campaign, Jerome struggled to score in the top flight last season.

He struck just three goals in 19 starts, plus a further 15 substitute appearances, 35 games in total, while providing two assists.

The 29-year-old has experience playing in the Premier League also with Stoke City, Crystal Palace and Birmingham City.

His best spell in the top tier came in 2009/10 with Birmingham, in which he netted 11 times in 32 games.
