Transfer Rumour: Norwich Part of 5 Way Tussle For Left Back Matthew Sorinola

Celtic are keen on Blackburn Rovers and Norwich City target Matthew Sorinola, according to a report by Wales Online.

The Scottish Premiership champions are keeping tabs on the left-back and could battle Football League clubs for his signature this summer.

Sorinola, 21, currently plays in Belgium for Royale Union Saint-Gilloise but is being heavily linked with a return to England in the transfer window.

A report by TEAMtalk claims that Blackburn Rovers, Norwich City, Swansea City and Reading want him too.

You can see why the youngster is a man in-demand at the moment. He is young, has the potential to grow and develop in the future and already has experience under his belt.

A move to the Championship would be a good opportunity for him to make a name for himself in England and potentially get to the Premier League one day.

However, Celtic would be able to offer him European football which may turn his head.

Sorinola is originally from London and spent time in the academy at Fulham before switching to MK Dons.

He went on to break into the Dons’ first-team in 2020 and played 43 times for the League One side before his move abroad came about.

The wing-back made 16 appearances in all competitions in this past campaign and is still under contract until 2024 but his future is up in the air right now.

Celtic are the latest club to be credited with an interest and the likes of Blackburn Rovers and Norwich City will have to bat away competition from the Glasgow giants.

Transfer Rumour: Norwich Interested In Belgian Left Back Matthew Sorinola

Norwich City are reported to be considering making a move this summer for Royale Union Saint-Gilloise defender Matthew Sorinola, according to an article published today by Football League World. 

The 21-year-old left sided defender only joined the Belgian outfit from MK Dons last summer, hw went on to appear for the club 16 times in all competitions last season, however, 14 of these appearances were from the substitues bench

An earlier Football League World report in April had claimed that Swansea City had set their sights on the 21-year-old, with club manager Russell Martin said to be eyeing up a potential reunion with the youngster he managed previously.

Martin managed the young defender during their time at MK Dons together, With Sorinola enjoying a breakout season under the 36-year-old’s stewardship.

Appearing 43 times in all competitions during the 2020/21 campaign with the Buckinghamshire club, Sorinola netted two times and provided a further six assists, benefitting from a system that allowed wing-backs to thrive in an attacking sense.

Norwich will be hoping to mount a promotion push upon their return to the Championship and have proven to recruit intelligently when in the second tier before.

Transfer Rumour: Canaries Linked With Blackburn Rovers midfielder Joe Rothwell

Reports are circulating in the media this weekend that link Norwich City with Blackburn Rovers midfielder Joe Rothwell, who is out of contract at Ewood Park this summer.

The Herald claims that City are facing competition from Rangers, Fulham and Bournemouth for the signature of the 27-year-old, who scored three goals and created 10 assists in a total of 41 appearances for the Lancashire team during the 2021-22 season.

Rovers manager Tony Mowbray, who is also out of contract this summer and will leave the club when Rothwell does, appeared to suggest that the club should've extended the Englishman's contract, saying: "I had strong opinions on what we should have done with that situation and the club made a decision.

"You have to abide by that and get on with it. I think Joe's talent deserves to play in the Premier League, we will see if he gets there.

"He's been very professional and worked very hard, and he's contributed with his performance levels. He has time to go in his development but I'm sure he can play in the Premier League."

City are well into their recruitment process with the transfer window opening in less than two weeks, but news of investment talks have led fans to speculate on the impact this may have on the Canaries' spending power.

Whether the deal would be done in time to impact dealings this summer is as yet unknown, but Norwich are understood to be looking to bolster their midfield options after Mathias Normann, Billy Gilmour and Lukas Rupp left the club.

Sporting director Stuart Webber stated that City "don’t have a lot of money" to spend this summer without selling their top stars.

Transfer Rumour: Club Brugge 'interested' in Canaries Winger Christos Tzolis

Norwich City's young Greek winger Christos Tzolis is attracting interest from Belgian side Club Brugge ahead of a potential move this summer, according to a report.

The 20-year-old only made the move to Carrow Road in August 2021, having joined the Canaries for a fee of around £9.5m from Greek side PAOK.

However, Tzolis struggled to make an impact at Norwich in the 2021-22 campaign, starting just three Premier League games in a total of 14 league appearances under Daniel Farke and Dean Smith.

The winger did net a brace and add two further assists in Norwich's 6-0 demolition of Bournemouth in the EFL Cup just 12 days after his arrival in Norfolk, but was used sparingly as his side suffered an immediate return to the Championship.

As a result of his lack of playing time this year, Tzolis is prepared to ask to leave this summer, according to Greek outlet Metrosport.

The report suggests that Belgian Pro League outfit Club Brugge are interested in acquiring the Greek international either on a loan deal or a permanent transfer, having been interested in a move for him 18 months ago.

Tzolis enjoyed a breakthrough season with PAOK in the 2020-21 campaign, netting 16 goals and registering 10 assists in 46 games across all competitions, which led to the first of his 13 caps for Greece in October 2020, aged just 18.

The club's majority shareholders are chef Delia Smith and her husband Michael Wynn-Jones.

Transfer Rumour: Max Aarons Arsenal Links Resurface

Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal have received a boost in their reported quest to sign Max Aarons from Norwich City in the summer transfer window.

The Sun reported last month that Arsenal and Manchester United are leading the race for Norwich right-back Aarons.  Alongside this, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are also reported to be keen on the 22-year-old, who can also operate as a left-back and is understood to be valued at £20 million by the Canaries.

The Telegraph have now reported that Norwich will sell the English youngster, as they have been relegated the Championship. With the Arsenal rumours gaining pace on the back of this.

The Gunners are a rich club, and if they are able to finish in the Champions League places in the Premier League table this season, then they would be able to afford the £20 million transfer fee for Aarons.

Aarons, described as a player who “has got huge potential” by former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand on his YouTube channel in September 2021, has made 28 starts and two substitute appearances in the Premier League this season, providing one assist in the process.  Alongside this he has featured regularly for the England U-21 team over the last couple of year

Transfer Rumour: Todd Cantwell Expected To Return To Norwich

Bournemouth look unlikely to pursue a permanent deal for Norwich City’s Todd Cantwell this summer, reports DorsetLive.

Cantwell, 24, joined Bournemouth on loan from Norwich City in January. The Englishman had fallen out of favour at Carrow Road and has so far racked up 11 Championship outings for the Cherries.

But Cantwell has been left out of the last two matchday squads by Scott Parker. The Norwich City man has failed to record any goal contributions in what’s been a disappointing loan spell on the south coast and now, DorsetLive have revealed that Bournemouth look unlikely to pursue a permanent deal.

Their report reveals that Norwich City would command upwards of £10million for Cantwell, and that Bournemouth will wait until the season is over to confirm their stance on the player, but that it’s looking ‘increasingly unrealistic’ that the Canaries will manage to offload the midfielder for the asking price this summer.

A disappointing decline…

Cantwell burst into the scene a few years ago with Norwich City. He showed a lot of promise in his earlier years but he’s since seen his career go on something of a decline.

He’s no longer favoured at Norwich City and his spell at Bournemouth has been widely disappointing, so it remains to be seen what the future holds for the attacking midfielder.

His Norwich City contract expires next season. The Canaries might look to sell him this summer as to avoid losing him on a free transfer, but it seems unlikely that anyone will meet that £10million valuation after his Bournemouth spell.

Transfer Rumour: Norwich Linked With Loan Move For Villa Striker Cameron Archer

With Norwich's relegation confirmed, the transfer rumour and stories are starting to flow as people speculate on The Canaries rebuilding plans for life in the Championship next year.

Kevin Phillips believes that Aston Villa will look to keep Cameron Archer long-term.

The forward has impressed while out on loan in the second half of the season. And, the 20-year old has scored seven Championship goals from 19 appearances since joining Preston North End in January.

Norwich City have been linked with a move for the striker, with former Villa boss Dean Smith said to be interested in re-uniting with the youngster.  But the Premier League outfit are not interested in selling the striker on a permanent basis this summer.

However, Phillips believes another loan move would be the right step forward for Archer as he continues his development as a senior player.

“I would think he would go on loan again,” said Phillips talking to website Football Insider.

“Norwich are back in the Championship again next season.

“He’s done so well at Preston, and that would give him another opportunity to do well at a club where the manager knows him – and they like to play attractive football.”

“It’s another learning curve for his development.

“He could turn out to be a really important player and asset for Aston Villa – they clearly like him.

“He’d only be in and around the first-team next season, so for his development – it’s best for him to have another spell at the top of the Championship.

“That way, he’s well-equipped to come back to the club and play well in the Premier League – or he can be an asset in the transfer market.”
