Hull City have had bids rejected for Brighton and Hove Albion pair Oliver Norwood and Jiri Skalak, according to Hull Live.
The Tigers are looking to further bolster their squad ahead of their upcoming Championship campaign and could move back in for the Premier League duo.
Hull have so far signed Eric Lichaj from Nottingham Forest, Jordy de Wijs from PSV Eindhoven, Reece Burke from West Ham United, George Long from Sheffield United, Todd Kane from Chelsea and David Milinkovic from Genoa. They have now set their sights on more attacking options.
Their manager, Nigel Adkins, knows Oliver Norwood well from when he managed him at Reading. The Northern Ireland international midfielder could leave Brighton this summer for the right price and is high on Adkins’ radar.
Norwood spent last season on loan in the Championship with Fulham and helped the Cottagers gain promotion to the Premier League. He is now looking for a new permanent home and Hull could offer him one.
His Brighton teammate, Jiri Skalak, could follow him to the KCOM Stadium if Hull get their next bids right. The 26-year-old could leave the Seagulls for the right price in this transfer market having fallen down the pecking order with them in the top flight.
The Czech Republic played a key part in their promotion to the top flight under Chris Hughton in 2017 but it now appears his future lies away from the AMEX Stadium.
Hull City have done some decent business in the transfer market and if they can land Norwood and Skalak, that would be some more tidy deals by the Tigers.
