Boro are struggling in the Championship this season, sitting 19th in the table, just two points above the relegation zone.The prospect of leaving for the likes of Chelsea or Arsenal would probably be too good to turn down for the teenager.Kavanagh’s father, Graham, also played for Middlesbrough, as well as turning out for the likes of Stoke, Cardiff, Wigan, Sunderland and Republic of Ireland over a long career.MORE: Manchester United to offer Dean Henderson huge new contract amid Chelsea interestMORE: Frank Lampard sanctions £85m Chelsea transfer bid for Liverpool and Man Utd target Leon BaileyFollow Metro Sport across our social channels, on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.For more stories like this, check our sport page.
