Marvin Bakalorz will make a decision over his future “this week”, according to Hannover 96 boss Mirko Slomka.

The 29-year-old has been linked with a summer move to Norwich City, as Daniel Farke looks to make key additions ahead of their Premier League return.

Bakalorz will be out of contract this summer and his experience and quality make him an interesting target for the Canaries.

There is a chance that he will sign a new deal with Hannover, however, while fellow German outfit Hamburg are also reportedly interested.

Speaking to Sportbuzzer, Slomka says Bakalorz is currently weighing up his option, with his final decision imminent:

He decides this week, I’m sure of that.

We’ve got everything in our hands, but he also has an offer from another club, and now he has to decide.

I’m sure it will happen this week.

It is claimed that Farke met with former Hannover Andre Breitenreiter to get information on Bakalorz’s character, also asking if he could adapt to the Premier League.

The defensive midfielder has been at Hannover since 2016, but has never been capped by Germany.

The German side were relegated from the Bundesliga in 2018/19.
