Premier League trio eye Boro ace

Everton, Leicester and West Ham are all keen to sign Middlesbrough defender Ben Gibson this summer, according to reports.

The Premier League trio lead the list of clubs who have been tracking the 25-year-old centre-back over the past few months as they look to strengthen their squads this summer.

The Boro academy product was linked with a big money move last summer, with the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal all linked with a supposed interest in the 25-year-old.

However, despite the club’s relegation from the Premier League, he decided to stay with his hometown club for at least one more season.

He has continued his good form this season, and now according to Sky Sports, Everton, Leicester and West Ham are considering making a move for him, if Middlesbrough fail to be promoted back to the Premier League this season.

The North East club are currently in the playoffs and are looking to bounce back to the top flight at the first attempt.

It is claimed that Boro value the centre-back at around £20 million.
