Norwich City’s 2018/19 campaign is over and the club are now preparing to enter the Premier League for the first time in over three years.
The Canaries spent three seasons down in the Championship, before Daniel Farke led the club to the title. They finished on 94 points, five clear of Sheffield United in second and 11 clear of Leeds United in third.
Sporting director Stuart Webber will now be hard at work as he looks to give Farke the best possible chance of keeping the club in the Premier League next season.
This means that players will be coming in and out of Carrow Road this summer, as Norwich look to improve their squad.
They could look to the three sides relegated from the Premier League and attempt to snap up their best players – taking advantage of their relegation to the Championship.
Here are players from Huddersfield, Cardiff and Fulham that Norwich could target…
Reid scored five Premier League goals for Cardiff and showed that he could play in a variety of positions in the frontline. He could be a good addition to compete with Teemu Pukki and cover other areas where Norwich lack depth.
Norwich were linked with a move for Babel earlier this year and the club could still be interested in a deal for the Dutch winger. He’s set to be a free agent this summer after impressing for Fulham in the Premier League.
Although he is technically an Arsenal player, we’re going to count this one. Chambers was one of Fulham’s more impressive players in their poor Premier League season and is capable of playing at right-back, centre-back and holding midfield. He could be an excellent addition to Norwich’s squad.
Norwich need depth in the fullback positions and Durm is capable of playing at right-back and left-back. He is also available on a free, which is ideal for Norwich given their budget for the upcoming campaign.
Norwich are thought to be looking for a new central midfielder and Aaron Mooy could be the man. The Huddersfield star has impressed over the last two seasons and deserves another chance in the Premier League to prove that’s where he belongs, rather than the Championship.
Johansen fell out of favour as Fulham switched up their style of play and was loaned out to West Brom, where he ended the season well. Good on the ball and tough in the tackle, he could be a great addition to Norwich’s squad going forward.
It’s no secret that Norwich need a new goalkeeper this summer. Tim Krul was far from assured last season and Michael McGovern is nowhere near Premier League standard. They could bring in Etheridge to compete with Krul for the number one shirt.
