Premier League newbies Norwich City are reportedly closing in on a move for Werder Bremen striker Josh Sargent.
The Canaries won the Championship title last season with a staggering 97 points, achieving promotion to the Premier League after just a season away. Daniel Farke is preparing well his Norwich City team for survival this time around, with players such as Milot Rashica, Angus Gunn, Billy Gilmour and Pierre Lees-Melou having arrived at the Carrow Road so far in this transfer window.
According to CBS Sports, Werder Bremen’s USA international Josh Sargent has reached a deal with Norwich City, pending a medical. He was not there in Werder Bremen’s squad for their German Cup clash with VfL Osnabruck on Saturday, having not trained with Markus Anfang’s team on Friday.
Josh Sargent, 21, was one of the rare bright sparks in a wretched 2020/21 Bundesliga campaign for Bremen that ended in relegation. The U.S. international was the club’s top scorer last season with seven goals and begun the 2.Bundesliga campaign in spectacular style, scoring a brace in the 3-2 win over Fortuna Dusseldorf last week.
The 21-year-old striker was also a part of Gregg Berhalter’s U.S. squad that won the Concacaf Nations League earlier this summer. Following Bremen’s relegation from the Bundesliga, it had been long expected that Josh Sargent would move on from the German club, and now looks set to join Daniel Farke’s Norwich ahead of the Premier League campaign
