Transfer Southampton, Everton, Palace battle for red-hot Akpom. Southampton, Everton, and Crystal Palace, three Premier League teams, are apparently thinking about signing Chuba Akpom in January.
Due to his outstanding performances for Middlesbrough in the Sky Bet Championship this season, Akpom has drawn attention.
The Nigerian-born attacker has 19 league games under Michael Carrick and 13 goals to his credit.
The Daily Mail reports that a transfer to the Premier League may now be in the works.
Particularly Southampton, who have already scored 15 goals in 17 Premier League games this season, are in serious need of a new striker.
Everton and Crystal Palace are also quite interested in the striker.
Even though Akpom’s deal with Boro is set to expire in the summer, the Teesiders have the option to keep him for another year.
