Teams battle to sign Bamford

Teams battle to sign Bamford

by -

Chelsea Forward Patrick Bamford is a transfer target for a few teams in this January transfer window. Struggling top tier side Norwich and in form Championship teams Hull and Middlesbrough are said to be the teams interested. Bamford has spent some time on loan at Middlesbrough and isn’t shy of scoring goals at that level. The 22-year-old scored 17 goals in 39 games at the riverside stadium and seems really suited for their style of football.

It’s unknown at this time where the Chelsea man will end up. Norwich will be looking to lure him in with Premier League football but Middlesbrough can surely guarantee the striker first team football on a more frequent basis and he already knows his way around the ground.

Furthermore, Chelsea are said to have a deal in place to sign Alexandre Pato from Corinthians and if the deal is completed it will surely help Guus Hiddink make the decision the let Bamford go.
