Basel have made Norwich City defender Timm Klose their number one target for the January transfer window.

According to Goal reporter Ronan Murphy, Timm Klose is top of their wishlist this month.

Klose has been in excellent form for Norwich in the Championship this season and it is of no surprise to see him linked with a move away.
