Premier League trio AFC Bournemouth, Leicester City and Crystal Palace are all interested in Norwich City winger Josh Murphy, according to The Mirror.

The 23-year-old has been in fine form for the Canaries this season and has scored 10 goals. However, they will face a battle to keep of him in the summer.

Norwich City are expecting a raid on their players at the end of the season with their one of their other midfielders, James Maddison, also attracting Premier League interest. Daniel Farke’s side may sell both for hefty fees to stabilise their financial situation.

Josh Murphy’s twin brother, Jacob, was sold to newly promoted Premier League team Newcastle United last summer for £12 million. Josh has filled his boots this season but could be facing him as an opponent in the next campaign.

Josh Murphy started his career with Norwich having joined them at under-12 level. He signed his first professional contract at Carrow Road in January 2013 and made his first-team debut seven months after against Watford.

Since then, he has had loan spells away from Norwich at Wigan Athletic and MK Dons, both in the Championship, where he has obtained playing time. He broke into the Norwich team last season and has not looked back.

The Premier League could be beckoning for Josh Murphy if reports that Bournemouth, Crystal Palace and Leicester City are all keeping tabs on him.
