The Teessiders have been in talks over the 30-year-old former Manchester City frontman for some time as they look to secure an initial loan deal.
It’s understood that those discussions will continue in Marbella, where Boro will play three games starting with Tuesday night’s friendly against Real Betis.
Head coach Aitor Karanka has already boosted his squad for life in the Premier League with six new additions in the shape of Victor Valdes, Viktor Fischer, Bernardo Espinosa, Marten de Roon, Jordan McGhee and Antonio Barragan, and he is not about to stop there.
