Boro linked with Gomez swoop

The playmaker spent the season on loan at Championship side Swansea, but boss Roberto Martinez has confessed the Welsh club are unlikely to be able to afford a full-time deal.

Gomez impressed for the Swans and it is thought that Boro are considering an offer, funded by parachute payments from Premier League relegation and probable player sales.

The 24-year-old, who is believed to be valued at €2million (£1.7million) has stated that he would prefer to stay in Spain but, with La Liga interest limited, he would accept a return to England.

"My dream is to play in the Primera division, but nobody has done anything," Gomez told Spanish media.

"The normal solution would be a move to England and I am mentally prepared for this.

"During the season, many clubs have sent their scouts and I believe the reports are positive.

"But the definitive decision rests with Espanyol."
