Transfer Talk: Blues in the hunt for Chelsea sensation
Birmingham City are reportedly in the race for Chelsea midfielder Lewis Baker, according to reports.
However, before Harry Redknapp has even made any progress on a deal to bring the England under 21 international to he club, he looks set to miss out on another target.
According to the Northern Echo online, fellow Championship side Middlesbrough are also in the running for his signature and it is believed that they are the favourites.
Blues are currently a little light in the attacking midfield role and there is thought to be talks on going between Lazio and Blues about the availability of Ravel Morrison but Redknapp clearly wants to look at other options.
In the same reports, it suggests that Baker is set to leave on a two-year loan deal meaning that should Boro get promoted, he will finally have a chance at proving himself in the top flight of English football.
