The Ghana international has done well for Posh in League One this season, Poku's side are currently fifth in the league with the player having scored six goals and provided six assists.

Nathaniel Adjei

Sunderland and Middlesbrough are locked in a 'transfer race' for Nathaniel Adjei - with Championship rivals Preston North End also said to be interested.

The 21-year-old Ghanian defender is attracting interest from Championship clubs, according to national reports.

They state that the trio of second-tier clubs want the defender to help bolster their respective promotion pushes as they eye a spot in the 20-team Premier League.

It is also said that Rangers have sent scouts to watch Adjei, who plays for Hammarby IF in Allsvenskan, Sweden.

Luciano Rodriguez

Reports say that Sunderland are keen on a deal for Luciano Rodriguez from Liverpool of Montevideo.

It has been claimed that Sunderland chief Stuart Harvey has been scouting the striker, who is seen as a potential replacement for Ross Stewart, who departed for Southampton last summer in a big-money move.

The deal to take Stewart to St Mary's brought in around £10million to the coffers at the Stadium of Light, with reports suggesting that Rodriguez could cost around £8million.

The 19-year-old striker is said to be keen to move to Europe, and his profile is on the rise after he netted the winning goal when Uruguay beat Italy 1-0 in the under-20 World Cup final in June.
