Transfer Rumour: Norwich Slap £50m Price on Ben Godfrey

According to reports in the media this morning, Norwich City will demand up to £50m if they are to lose their highly-rated young English central defender Ben Godfrey.

German clubs Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig are among those keen to sign the England U21 international, with the Canaries looking almost certain to be relegated from the Premier League. in the next few weeks

Norwich believe the 22-year old will become an England first-team regular in the future and are adamant, therefore, that he will not leave on the cheap if they do indeed slide back into the Championship.

The centre-back is under contract until 2023 and has made 29 appearances to date, including in Tuesday night's 2-1 defeat at Watford, and he has impressed in the top-flight despite a difficult season for Daniel Farke's team.

However, reports in the German media would seem to suggest that both Dortmund and RB Leipzig value Godfrey at about half of what Norwich wish to secure for him if he leaves this summer.
