According to reports from Italian outlet Transfer Market Web, Premier League outfit Middlesbrough have moved ahead of Liverpool in the race to secure the services of Jese Rodriguez.
Jese Rodriguez made a big money move from Real Madrid to Paris-Saint Germain over the summer but it has to be said that the transfer has not worked out for the young Spanish attacker.
Jese has been limited to only 368 minutes of action on the pitch in all competitions so far this season and it is clear to see that the 23-year-old currently finds himself well down the pecking order at the Parc des Princes under manager Unai Emery.
As a result, there has been widespread speculation that Jese will be leaving PSG during the current January transfer window and a move to the Premier League has been seen on the cards for the ex-Madrid man, with Liverpool and Middlesbrough both said to be interested.
Now in an update to the story, Italian outlet Transfer Market Web have gone on to claim that Middlesbrough have moved ahead of Liverpool in the race to sign Jese and Boro boss Aitor Karanka is said to be desperate to reunited with the striker he coached at the Santiago Bernabeu.
