Transfer Rumour: Norwich lining up move for PAOK winger Christos Tzolis

Norwich City are reported to be considering a club-record transfer bid in an attempt to sign PAOK winger Christos Tzolis, Football Insider has reported.

The Canaries have returned to the Premier League after a single campaign in the Championship last year, and they have shown significantly more ambition in the transfer market than their previous promotion season.

In 2018/19, the hierarchy were content to stick with the options in the first-team squad, and they paid the price as they were relegated without a fight.

They are keen to avoid a similar repeat next season but have ground to make after sanctioning the sale of Emiliano Buendia to Aston Villa.

Todd Cantwell has also been fancied to make the switch to Villa Park, and the club need to bring in quality replacements to avoid another drop.

Milot Rashica was recently added to the ranks as Buendia’s replacement, and they now have their sights on landing Greek sensation Tzolis.

The 19-year-old had a top campaign for PAOK last season, registering 16 goals and 10 assists from 46 appearances across all competitions.

He has been linked with Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund, but the Canaries are fancied to sign him in a club-record deal worth £10 million.

Transfer Rumour: Norwich Plan Renewed Bid For Celtic Defender Kristoffer Ajer

Norwich City are set go back in with a renewed £12 million bid for Kristoffer Ajer.

The newly-promoted Premier League side has already had a number of bids rejected, as have German side Bayer Leverkusen, for the Norwegian international.

The Canaries have made a central defender a priority and Ajer has been a long-term target.

They are ready to make a bid with future add-ons built in.

Ajer, 23, is in the last year of his contract and Celtic will need to sell in this window if they want to maximise their return, having bought the Norwegian international for a bargain six figure fee in 2016 from IK Start.

Transfer News: Billy Gilmour Set For Carrow Road Medical Ahead Of Loan Move

Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour will undergo a medical with Norwich City today ahead of his loan move to Carrow Road.

Gilmour is regarded as a future star at Stamford Bridge but Thomas Tuchel is keen for the Scotland international to get regular first-team football next season.

With N’Golo Kante, Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic ahead of him in the pecking order, the 20-year-old has been given the green light to leave the club on a temporary basis.

Newcastle United have also been interested in a loan move but Sky Sports News report the Canaries are now on the verge of sealing a move.

Gilmour is expected to be handed a key role in Daniel Farke’s newly promoted side.

 

Transfer Rumour: Sebastian Soto On Verge Of Leaving for €1m After Just One Season

It looks like it didn’t take very long for Norwich City and Porto to find a deal for the transfer of Sebastian Soto, as the news about his move to Portugal came all of a sudden.

The Dragons’ agreement to land the 20-year-old was first reported last night by outlet Mais Futebol, and local newspapers bring a few more details on the deal today.

Newspaper Record confirms that Soto is joining Porto on a one-year loan deal, and now adds that the Portuguese side will have the option to buy the player for only €1m in this period.

The striker will join the club’s B squad at first, but will have his way open to impress manager Sergio Conceição and go up in their ‘elevator’ to the first team.

Record highlights that the Dragons have been looking for young and cheap players, and pinpoints the impressive form that Soto has been having for the United States national team.

Norwich City signed Soto on a free move from Hannover 96 last summer. They immediately sent him to the Netherlands, where he spent six months on loan at Telstar.

The striker had seven goals in 12 games for the Dutch side and then returned to the Canaries in January. However, he couldn’t find a place in the English side, and could now be leaving the club for good.

Transfer News: Celtic reject £10m bid from Norwich City for Kristoffer Ajer

Celtic have have reportedly rejected two bids for sought after defender Kristoffer Ajer.

According to a report published at The Athletic, the Bhoys have rejected £10 million offers from both Bayer Leverkusen and Norwich City already this summer.

The Norway international has made it clear to Celtic that he wants to leave the club and is unhappy with how they have handled the situation.

It has been claimed that Celtic have assured him that he will be sold if they receive an ‘appropriate’ offer.

Celtic want to secure a substantial fee for Ajer, but Norwich are unlikely to increase their bid for the defender.

The 23-year-old will be free to sign a pre-contract agreement with clubs outside Scotland in January, ahead of the 2022-23 campaign.
