Norwich City are keen on a move for Sheffield Wednesday striker Jordan Rhodes, according to The Pink ‘Un.

Blackburn Rovers and Nottingham Forest are also said to be keen on the 28-year-old, who could be sold by Sheffield Wednesday this summer.

Norwich City could sell Nelson Oliveira over the coming months to free up funds to sign a new forward. Rhodes is high on their list and they could move for the experienced striker this summer.

The Canaries will have to face competition from Nottingham Forest for his signature. The Reds’ boss Aitor Karanka knows Rhodes from their time at Middlesbrough together and could be keen on a reunion at the City Ground.

Blackburn Rovers have also been credited with an interest. Rhodes spent four seasons at Ewood Park from 2012 to 2016 and his former club could move for him this summer as they look to prepare for life back in the Championship next season.

Rhodes has fallen down the pecking order at Sheffield Wednesday this season. However, throughout his career he has proven that he is a top striker at this level and would be a good signing by another Championship side.

He started his career at Ipswich Town and signed for Huddersfield Town in 2009. After scoring 87 goals in 148 games for the Terriers, he was signed by Blackburn for £8 million in 2012. After four seasons at Ewood Park, he was signed by Middlesbrough in January 2016.

He helped get Boro promoted in his first season but fell down the pecking order in the Premier League and left them to join Sheffield Wednesday. Rhodes could now be set for another move over the coming months.
