Cottagers tracking Getafe pair

It is claimed that the Cottagers have had the pair watched on

several occasions this season by their scouting network. The club

may be yet to secure their Premier League status for another

season, but Mark Hughes already appears to be turning his attention

towards next term. That means indentifying potential summer targets

before the transfer window re-opens for business. He is believed to

have taken a shine to Boateng and Miku, with the pair able to boast

considerable experience of life in European football. No approach

has been made to Getafe, but the Primera Liga outfit are aware that

a bid could be in the offing. A club director said: “There is

interest but as yet we have not received a formal offer.” Boateng

is a 27-year-old Ghanaian midfielder who is under contract at

Getafe until 2013. Miku, a Venezuelan frontman, is tied to the

Spanish side until 2014, but it is expected that both men could be

lured away if the price is right.
