Middlesbrough are looking to make the most of the loan window before it shuts at the end of August.

Middlesbrough made some impressive signings over the summer, but still lack a creative midfielder to consistently create chances each game.

Tony Pulis brought in some shrewd defensive acquisitions in Paddy McNair and Aden Flint and, according to the Hartlepool Mail, Boro are now being linked with a move for Real Madrid prospect Martin Odegaard. 

Middlesbrough fans have taken to social media to react to the news of a potential loan move for the young Real Madrid player.

The Championship side lost their most creative outlet to Premier League new-boys Wolverhampton Wanderers when Adama Traore departed from the Riverside earlier this summer.

Traore was key in Boro’s run to the Championship play-offs last season, scoring five goals and assisting his teammates on 10 occasions, something that Pulis’s side would clearly miss this term.

However, with the second tier table toppers now linked with a loan move for Odegaard, Middlesbrough’s creative problems could be solved.

The 19-year-old has struggled to live up to his £80,000 a week wage so far in his short professional career, with Odegaard making one appearance for the European giants and then moving on loan to Dutch side Heerenveen. 

However, a move to Boro under the watchful eye of the experienced Pulis could certainly kickstart his career, allowing Odegaard to fulfil his obvious potential. 

Here is some of the reaction to the news from Middlesbrough fans:
