Alves only joined Heerenveen from Malmo last summer, but marked his first season in the Eredivisie by scoring 34 goals in 31 appearances.

 

The 26-year-old is aware of Boro's interest and hinted he would be tempted by the chance to move to The Riverside.

 

Big club

 

"They are seriously interested in me," Alves told De Telegraaf.

 

"Middlesbrough have shown this, too, with their offer.

 

"For such a big club and for the Premier League, I am always open and the

 

first talks are really hopeful.

 

"That will not be the problem."

Wasn't the last striker to score a shed load of goals for Heerenveen Jon Dahl Tomasson? Or am I thinking of Andreas Andersson, either way they are both shite so I wouldn't read too much into it.

We signed Tomasson from Heerenveen iirc.
