Ipswich Town have been linked with a potential move for Middlesbrough winger Marvin Johnson.
Johnson, 27, joined Boro from Oxford for £3million last summer but made just six starts for the Riverside club last season.
The Blues, Hull and Birmingham are all said to have shown an interest in the left winger, who has also spent time at Motherwell and Kidderminster.
MailOnline report Johnson happy to fight for his place under Tony Pulis, with Middlesbrough needing to take a hit on the £3million now-Birmingham boss Garry Monk paid for him a year ago.
A loan or permanent departure is said to be possible.
New Ipswich manager Paul Hurst has already stated signing wingers is a priority this summer, with only Grant Ward and Danny Rowe currently on the books.
The Blues have also been linked with French/Serbian winger David Milinkovic, who spent last season on loan at Hearts in Scotland from Genoa.
The Serie A side have accepted a bid from the Jambos, with the player not yet entirely sold on the prospect of a permanent move to Edinburgh.
