According to reports from Calcio Mercato, Premier League club Middlesbrough are considering a swoop for Venezuelan international Juanpi Anor.

Middlesbrough have looked very impressive in the Premier League following their promotion from the Championship last season and one of the main reasons behind Boro’s fine start has been due to the encouraging performances of their new signings.

The likes of Alvaro Negredo, Antonio Barragan and Brad Guzan have done very well so far this season and the reinforced Middlesbrough side look well equipped to stave off relegation.

Nonetheless, the Premier League is an extremely difficult division and it is believed that manager Aitor Karanka is already looking at options to further improve his squad during the next transfer window in January.

Now according to reports from Calcio Mercato, Karanka is currently considering a swoop for Malaga attacking midfielder Juanpi.

Juanpi is an extremely talented young player who managed to break into the Malaga first-team back in 2014, and the 22-year-old has since established himself as a regular for the Boquerones over the course of the last two seasons.

Karanka is understandably a manager who has extensive knowledge of the Spanish game and Italian reports have revealed that the Boro boss is hopeful of luring Juanpi to the Riverside Stadium this winter.
