Middlesbrough are fearing they could lose star defender Dael Fry in the January transfer window, we can reveal.
Manchester City are taking a keen interest in the 22-year-old, but he is also being followed very closely by Tottenham, Everton and Wolves.
Fry is a product of Boro’s famed academy and he is has been handed the captain’s armband by Jonathan Woodgate this season.
Boro would be loathed to lose Fry, but they are not in a financial position to turn down a big bid, and if they received an offer of over £20million – they would sell.
City could well move for a new centre-back in January due to the long-term absence of Aymeric Laporte, while John Stones also has his own injury problems.
