Norwich City, on the other hand, have only made one new signing, though it is an astute addition in the form of midfielder Isaac Hayden.

More on Sara…

The 23-year-old midfielder has spent his entire career to date with Sao Paulo, progressing through their youth ranks and breaking into the Brazilian giants’ first-team.

Since then, Sara has gone on to feature 113 times, featuring in a range of roles. He can play as central or attacking midfielder, though he has also been deployed on the right-hand side and slightly deeper as a defensive midfielder before.

In his 113 outings, he has chipped in with 17 goals and nine assists. This seas has seen him play 15 times, though an ankle injury has kept him on the sidelines since April.

Amid hopes of a nearing deal, Sara could prove to be an intriguing signing for the Canaries this summer.
