Nigerian striker Chuba Akpom is having an excellent season at Middlesbrough, where he has won three player of the month awards in the 2022/23 season.
According to talkSPORT, Leeds are interested in signing the Englishman this summer, while Everton are also interested in luring the prolific striker away from Teeside.
The Whites and Toffees will almost certainly be even more desperate to sign Akpom now.
Middlesbrough’s No. 29 has just won his third Player of the Month award this season, thanks to his outstanding performances in February.
Akpom has been named the PFA Vertu Motors Fans’ Player of the Month for February after scoring five goals in five Championship appearances during the month, assisting Boro to four victories.
The 27-year-old was also named PFA Vertu Motors Fans’ Player of the Month for November and January earlier this season.
Akpom has now impressively scored 24 goals across all competitions this season, with 23 coming in 30 Championship appearances, while he also has one goal in one FA Cup outing this term.
Although he missed being called up for the Eagles squad to face Guinea in the ongoing 2023 AFCON qualifiers, he is enjoying the best goalscoring campaign on his career, and it is no wonder Leeds and Everton are taking an interest in his ability.
“I’ve never been disrespectful with Leon. If anything, I’ve been the only guy that has given him respect all throughout his career. I’m not going to start (on him) now. He’s said a couple (of) things that have offended me, but I’ll talk to him about that on Saturday night.”
The fans have spoken, and the stage at the 02 Arena is set with both fighters expected to take to the octagon for the main event and the highly-anticipated matchup will be a technical master-class, with both athletes sure to put on an epic display.
