SV Hamburg's Croatia international striker Ivica Olic is unlikely to be interested in a move to Middlesbrough according to his representative. Boro are rumoured to have registered an interest in the 29-year-old frontman, who seems set to leave his current club at the end of the season, if not in January. Olic's agent, Gordon Stipic told Sky Sports: "We learnt about Boro's interest from the press, but I have not had talks with them and to be honest we are not sure they would be worthwhile. "I don't think they are the type of club that Ivica would consider at this stage. "We are talking with Juventus, Valencia, Bayern Munich and of course Hamburg, and it would be very hard for us to talk to anyone else as we are a long way down the line with these clubs. "Of course a move to the Premier League would appeal, but any club at least would have to be in Europe and ideally in the Champions League - that is where Ivica wants to be. "Time is pressing now and we will be talking again in Hamburg this week. as we want to make a decision between now and the New Year. "Ivica now feels he will be playing for one of the clubs I have mentioned."
