Norwich’s January target Sebastien Haller is set to leave Utrecht this summer, having been subject to interest from the Canaries and Sam Allardyce’s Sunderland in the January transfer window.
According to the Evening Chronicle, the striker’s agent Loic Gustan is insisting the 21-year-old Frenchman will be on the move in the summer.
Haller’s 16 goals this season has seen his team reach fifth in the Dutch Eredivisie, with the striker also helping his country’s U21 team beat Scotland in the U21 Championship qualifying.
As part of manager Alex Neil’s shopping spree in January, it was rumoured the club had made a £7m and there was speculation the deal was all but done. However, the highly rated striker ruled himself of the move insisting a winter transfer would be “too risky” and he would be staying in Holland until the summer.
Since then, Haller’s agent has stated that his client will be staying in Holland, with Ajax his likely destination rather than opting for the Premier League, with Haller ambitious to play European football and the league leaders after the signature of his client.
He will leave in the summer, that’s for sure. Haller has mapped out a path for himself and he won’t just join any club.
He wants to join a stable club and a club that has the structure to play European football.
I think Ajax will soon find themselves talking to Utrecht on Sebastien.
