Transfer Rumour: Leeds Submit £15m Cantwell Bid to Norwich

Leeds United have submitted a £15m bid for Norwich City midfielder Todd Cantwell according to reports  circulating on the internet this morning.

Football Insider claim Marcelo Bielsa’s side have tabled a bid after scouting the England Under-21 international extensively last season.

It is claimed that Cantwell has been left out of Norwich’s squad for their Championship clash at Bournemouth on Sunday afternoon.

Cantwell has two years left on his Carrow Road deal after renewing terms last summer.

The Canaries are also bracing themselves for more interest in young defender Max Aarons before the end of the transfer window, which ends for overseas clubs on October 5 but domestic deals can still take place until October 16.

Barcelona appear to have beaten Bayern Munich to the signature of Ajax right back Sergino Dest, prompting questions whether the Germans will now switch their attention to City’s right back.

Transfer Rumour: Striker Teemu Pukki set to stay at Norwich

According to reports from Football365 Wolves, Leeds, Aston Villa, West Brom and Sheffield United have all enquired about the Finland international striker this summer, However Teemu Pukki is poised to stay at Norwich this transfer window – but the Canaries could face a battle to keep him in January.

The striker has interest from the Premier League but is likely to remain at Carrow Road beyond the end of the window next week, the PA news agency understands.

Pukki also has interest from Germany and Turkey but there have been no official approaches with the expectation Norwich’s asking price will be too high.

He also turned 30 this year meaning he will have little resale value which has also been an issue for some clubs.

But Norwich will need to be challenging for promotion in January or they could lose him with the forward harbouring top-flight ambitions.

He signed a three-year deal 12 months ago and, while he is in no rush to leave Norfolk and is happy at Carrow Road, Pukki proved himself in the Premier League last term.

He scored 11 goals as Daniel Farke’s side finished bottom of the table.

Pukki has netted 42 times in 86 appearances for the Canaries since joining on a free transfer in 2018 and scored 29 goals when they won the Sky Bet Championship in 2018-2019.

Transfer Rumour: AC Milan & Roma Latest Clubs Interested In Norwich's Max Aarons

AC Milan and Roma have joined the list of clubs who want to sign Max Aarons from Norwich City.  It is understood according to media reports that both of the Italian clubs are intending to submit bids to Norwich for 20-year-old Aarons in the near future.

Barcelona and Bayern Munich also want him if they fail to sign Ajax's 19-year-old USA international right-back Sergino Dest.

Aarons, however, would like to wait a little longer to see how the situation with Dest develops, with both Barcelona and Bayern having previously expressed concrete interest in the highly-rated England U21 defender.

Sky Sports News reported earlier this month that Barcelona had agreed personal terms with Aarons over a loan move to La Liga.

But the deal broke down after Norwich were reluctant to let the defender leave because there was no obligation to buy at the end of the loan.

Sky Germany reported earlier in the transfer window that Bayern were prepared to pay €20m (£18.3m) to sign Aarons permanently, while Bayer Leverkusen have also been keen on the defender.

£30m-rated centre-back Ben Godfrey has also attracted interest from AC Milan, and from Leverkusen.

Aarons enjoyed an impressive 2019/20 campaign under Daniel Farke, excelling in 40 appearances in all competitions, despite Norwich's relegation to the Sky Bet Championship.

He is under contract at Carrow Road until June 2024.

“He’s good in possession, we lost Naby [Sarr], so we had to replace him.

“Akin is someone who naturally can play on that [left] side, who is confident, who can step out and he can play. He can also play left-back or left of a three – there is a lot of versatility with him, so he’s another good addition.

“Norwich speak very, very highly of him. We’re lucky to have been able to get a player like him.”

New Charlton Athletic owner Thomas Sandgaard added: “I’m really pleased we’ve been able to bring Akin Famewo to the club.

“Lee Bowyer and Steve Gallen have made it clear adding players in defence was important, so I’m happy that, following yesterday’s takeover, we’ve been able to move quickly to get Akin in, as I know the deal has been lined up for a while.”

Transfer Rumour: Leeds Plotting Swoop for Norwich's Todd Cantwell

Leeds United are plotting a late-window move for Norwich City attacking midfielder Todd Cantwell, according to website Football Insider.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side want to recruit an attacking midfielder and a number eight for their first team in the final 10 days of the summer window.

The former England Under-21 international has been linked with some of the Premier League’s elite clubs this year but talk of a potential move has gone quiet.

Leeds have him firmly in their sights now he has entered the final two years of his Norwich contract.

He signed a new Carrow Road deal last year but it only runs until 2022 and that leaves Daniel Farke’s side vulnerable to top-flight clubs.

Cantwell has begun the season in the Championship following Norwich’s relegation and has started the club’s opening two league fixtures.

He played in a right-sided attacking midfield position against both Preston North End and Huddersfield.

Operating predominantly on the left flank last season, Cantwell made 30 league starts among 40 appearances in all competitions, yielding seven goals and two assists.

Bonne’s future has been the subject of intense speculation in recent weeks with the player being linked with several sides in the English Championship since his team’s relegation to League One.

In need of a centre-back this transfer window, French Ligue 1 side Rennes have looked at a number of options.

Among those was Mohamed Salisu, who ended up at Southampton, and their search hassince  evolved to targeting Jean-Clair Todibo at Barcelona.

However, if that doesn’t pan out, they are understtod to have an alternative plan involving Norwich City’s Ben Godfrey.

Norwich's young central defender was one of the stand out performers for the club in their disappointing Premier League season which ulyimately saw them relegated at the end of it, attracting interest along the way, and a move to France could become an option.

This is according to French Website Foot Mercato, who explain Florian Maurice, the  club’s technical director, has been following Godfrey for ‘a long time’ and is now reportedly ‘keeping an eye’ on him.

Unfortunately, the player’s profile and status in England means that his name ‘has been ticked by most big European clubs’, which has increased his price, making him ‘very expensive’ for a club of Rennes’ status.
