After a disappointing season for Norwich City, here are five players they could sign this summer –
Marcus Maddison, Peterborough United – The Peterborough United star deserves a chance in the Championship. The winger has made 148 appearances for The Posh scoring 35 goals. Maddison, who has the most assists in League One, has been a pain to League One defence for a number of years but will he get the chance to shine in the Championship for Norwich?
Jon Nolan, Shrewsbury Town – The midfielder has made 43 appearances for Shrewsbury this season and has managed to notch nine goals from midfield. A host of Championship clubs have expressed their interest in signing Nolan, so Norwich will have competition if they wish to sign the midfielder. With Shrewsbury failing to earn promotion to the Championship and Paul Hurst leaving for Ipswich Town maybe this is the right time for him to move on.
Dean Henderson, Manchester United – The young Manchester United youngster has certainly caught the eye in his massive success at Shrewsbury Town last season. The 21-year-old shot-stopper has been regarded by many as the best goalkeeper in League One last season. Henderson’s quality hasn’t gone unnoticed either. A vast array of clubs have hinted at acquiring the young goalkeeper, who deserves a chance to prove himself at Championship level, he would be a perfect fit for Norwich but it’s unlikely they will land him as they would have to fend off a host of interest.
Callum Hudson-Odoi, Chelsea – During the recent FIFA Under-17 World Cup, Hudson-Odoi scored England’s first goal of the tournament against Chile, and was an integral part in their eventual triumph, playing in every game. The young midfielder particularly starred in the final, assisting three goals to help England come from two goals down to beat Spain 5-2. Known for going on mazy runs through midfield, the 17-year-old has a high ceiling and at such a young age, has plenty of time to make the breakthrough into senior football.
Ethan Ampadu, Chelsea – Having joined Chelsea in the summer from Exeter, highly-rated starlet Ethan Ampadu has impressed Antonio Conte to such an extent that he did not allow him to go out on loan and has instead found himself on the fringes of the first team picture. The 17-year-old made his debut in the Carabao Cup third round against Nottingham Forest last season, garnering rave reviews with a calm, assured performance in the middle of the park.
