Norwich are poised to step up their efforts to make Carlos Carvalhal their new manager according to The Mirror
The Canaries have put the Sheffield Wednesday boss at the top of their list in their search for a permanent replacement for Alex Neil.
Their interest was on hold while they awaited the outcome of Wednesday’s Championship play-off tie with Huddersfield.
And the Owls’ penalty shootout defeat to Huddersfield has consigned them to another season in the second tier but boosted Norwich’s hopes of landing their man.
Norwich have been led by caretaker Alan Irvine since Neil’s dismissal in March.
Carvalhal was appointed Wednesday boss in June 2015 replacing Stuart Gray who finished 13th the previous season.
They have made progress under the Portuguese boss but suffered play-off heartache in each of his two seasons also losing last year’s final loss to Hull.
