Derby County are showing an interest in signing Norwich City’s Cameron Jerome according to a report from the Derby Telegraph.
Jerome has been a solid striker for many years for Norwich, being a key player as they got promoted to the Premier League via the play-offs in 2015. However it appears that the change in management has not worked out for Jerome. Since Daniel Farke became the Canaries head coach, Jerome has struggled to break into the first team and it is becoming more and more likely that he will leave during this transfer window.
And Derby are now set to make another move to sign him. Reports indicated that the Rams were interested in signing him back in the summer but with him said to be worth £3m back then, they ended up backing out of that deal. But with Jerome not playing that much since the summer, it is believed that Norwich’s demands have dropped and that he could be available for a fee between £1.5m and £2m.
But while Derby may be interested in signing Jerome, they look set to face plenty of stiff competition for his signature. Two of his former sides Birmingham City and Cardiff City have also been linked with moves for the 30-year-old striker this month while Sunderland are also looking at him as they look to avoid getting relegated for the second season in a row. So while Derby may want to sign the former Stoke City man, they will find it tough to finalise.
