Middlesbrough Opinion: Why Hosam Aiesh would be a top signing for Boro?
According to a report from Sky Sports, Middlesbrough are one of the number of clubs interested in Ostersunds FK star, Hosam Aiesh.
The Gothenburg-born winger made his debut for the Swedish national team earlier this year, and it seems only a matter of time before Hosam Aiesh bids farewell to the Allsvenskan with interest on the rise.
Despite his 2019 not being so good due to injuries and lack of form, Middlesbrough must table a bid for the 24-year-old Ostersunds FK just cannot reject.
Middlesbrough appointed Jonathan Woodgate as their new manager last week, with the 39-year-old replacing Tony Pulis at the Riverside Stadium. Woodgate will be keen to change the team’s style of play which was dour and uninspiring under Pulis. Boro scored only 49 goals last season, which was lesser than relegated Rotherham’s tally of 52 goals.
Clearly, the Teesside-based club must sign quality forwards if they are to realistically push for promotion under Woodgate next term.
Boro would definitely benefit from adding depth to their attacking options, with Britt Assombalonga, Jordan Hugill, Rudy Gestede and Ashley Fletcher being the recognised striking options available to Woodgate at the moment.
Therefore, Middlesbrough must go all out to sign Hosam Aiesh, who is a player in demand, with real quality. Aiesh is one of the best talents emerging from Swedish football that could have a great future and may succeed if given the chance in England.
He’s a winger by trade with explosive pace and agility, while he can also operate as a centre-forward if required.
The Sweden international is a player who plays near to the edge of the opposition penalty area, as an advanced playmaker or inside forward, where he can hurt teams with his vision, incisive passing and dribbling.
He is known for his trickery, whilst his pace and technical qualities will surely endear him to the Boro faithful too.

Aiesh would bring in the energy and speed down the wide areas that Boro lost following the departure of Adama Traore to Wolves last season. Certainly, the 24-year-old has the qualities to supply the firepower needed to take the Teessiders to new heights in the 2019/20 campaign.
Aiesh could be looking for a fresh challenge this summer having spent his entire career playing in Sweden. Landing the one-cap Sweden international would be a remarkable coup for Woodgate and would highlight that Middlesbrough means business next season.
