Norwich City and Watford are reportedly in the race to sign Sergi Enrich this summer.
The experienced forward is set to be available on a free transfer, with no new deal at Eibar set to be signed, and Spanish news outlet AS reports that the Canaries have made an approach.
Daniel Farke’s men secured the Championship title at the weekend with a 2-1 win away at Aston Villa, in which Teemu Pukki netted his 30th goal of the season in all competitions.
The Finnish forward has been excellent since arriving on a free, and it seems Norwich could explore a similar style of signing as they line up a possible deal for Enrich.
However, if the Canaries are to lure the experienced Spaniard away from his homeland, they will face competition from elsewhere.
Premier League outfit Watford are noted as potential suitors for Enrich, while La Liga trio Real Sociedad, Levante and Leganes are reportedly monitoring his situation at Eibar.
Why Enrich would be a good signing for Norwich
Strength in depth
Signing Enrich would provide Norwich with strength in depth. He’s a far better alternative option than the likes of Dennis Srbeny.
At 29-years-old, Enrich is experienced and knows what it takes to succeed in top-flight fixtures. This will be important as Farke leads an inexperienced group to the Premier League.
Enrich is a consistent player and has shown his capabilities in the final third this season. He has scored seven La Liga goals and chipped in with a further four assists.
With Enrich available on a free transfer, it’d be a signing that entails little to no risk. With Norwich likely to be working with a tight budget this summer, players of this quality for no cost should certainly be eyed.
