Norwich City are being linked with a swoop for out-of-contact Borussia Monchengladbach forward Josip Drmic.
The club are reportedly looking to sign Drmic on a free upon the expiry of his contract at the German club this summer.
Norwich have already made one signing in the transfer window, bringing in Patrick Roberts on a season-long loan from Premier League champions Manchester City.
Drmic could now be the next in line to come in the door at Carrow Road ready for a top-flight campaign.
Teemu Pukki and Dennis Srbeny are Norwich’s only senior forwards at present, following the end of Jordan Rhodes’ loan spell with the club.
Although Pukki looks set to be the club’s first choice, after 36 goals for Norwich and Finland this season, Srbeny has scored two league goals in 18 months in Norfolk.
But who is Drmic? We have put together a factfile on the potential Norwich signing…
He is a 26-year-old striker who stands at 6ft tall.
He was born in Lachen, Switzerland, and started his career at Zurich.
He is out of contract this summer and set to become a free agent next month.
Club career so far
Drmic started his career at Zurich, scoring 18 goals in 62 games before moving to the Bundesliga with Nurnberg.
He scored 17 goals in 33 games for Nurnberg, earning him a big move to Bayer Leverkusen.
After six goals in 26 games for Leverkusen, Drmic signed for Borussia Monchengladbach in 2015 – where he currently plays. He’s scored six goals in 41 games to date.
Drmic is a full Switzerland international.
The forward scored 12 goals in 18 games for Switzerland at under-18, under-19 and under-21 level combined.
He has been capped 32 times by his country, scoring two goals, and has played alongside Norwich defender Timm Klose.
He also represented his country at the London Olympics in 2012, failing to score in three games.
Drmic will be available on a free transfer upon the expiry of his Monchengladbach contract.
He is reportedly earning around €25k-per-week, which seems reasonable for Norwich – now in the Premier League.
Who else has been linked?
No one else has been linked with Drmic so far, which means that Norwich could be given a free run at the striker.
However, more clubs could become active as the window unfolds.
He was eligible to play for Croatia, due to his parents both being from the country.
He hired a lawyer to make sure he was given a Swiss nationality when he was 16 after he was rejected for knowing more about Zurich than his home town.
He scored in the World Cup last summer in a 2-2 draw with Costa Rica in Russia.
