Transfer Rumour: Norwich After £15m Rated Bournemouth Midfielder Philip Billing

AFC Bournemouth midfielder Philip Billing is a transfer target for Premier League side Norwich City this summer, according to The Mirror.

Having lost both Alex Tettey and Mario Vrancic this summer, as well as last season’s Tottenham loanee Oliver Skipp, the Canaries lack depth in the middle of the park upon their return to the top flight.

And following the Cherries’ failure to follow Daniel Farke’s side with promotion of their own, Billing is one of many players who may be seeking an exit from the Vitality Stadium.

The Denmark international appeared 42 times in all competition last season, but was seen to best effect under Jonathan Woodgate, who pushed him into a more advanced midfield role.

Seven of Billing’s eight goals came in the final 17 games of the regular Championship season and he added four assists to his tally in that time as well, with the 25-year-old proving to be a prolific figure.

Bournemouth paid £15 million to Huddersfield for Billing’s services back in 2019 and the Mirror believe that the Cherries would command a similar fee to prize him away from Dorset – and Norwich have cash to spend following the sale of Emi Buendia to Aston Villa.
