Aitor Karanka: Set to sign striker

The 24-year-old, full name Enrique Martinez Garcia, finished with 23 goals last season and was second top-scorer in the Segunda Division.

Real Murcia made the play-offs but they failed to make it to the top-flight after going out in the semi-finals and they have now agreed to let their prized asset move on.

Boro have now agreed a deal understood to be worth in excess of £3million for Kike, who has spent his whole career with Murcia.

The deal is expected to go through next week ahead and he should be free to link-up with Boro at the pre-season training camp in Marbella.

Kike will be Boro boss Aitor Karanka's second signing of the summer, and their second Spaniard, following on from the signing of goalkeeper Tomas Mejias, who concluded a permanent deal after previously being on loan from Real Madrid.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
