Norwich City are interested in signing Malaga star Javier Ontiveros this summer, according to ESPN FC.
The winger has previously represented Spain at Under-17, Under-18 and Under-19 level, highlighting his pedigree.
Ontiveros, now 21, is reportedly keen on moving to the Premier League ahead of next season.
Norwich are eyeing up a move for the Spaniard, as they look to build a squad capable of surviving in the top flight.
The Canaries are not the only Premier League club linked with Ontiveros’ signature, however, with Crystal Palace seeing him as a possible replacement for Wilfried Zaha, if he leaves.
Sheffield United are also keen on the wide man, although Norwich are the rumoured front-runners to snap him up.
Ontiveros impressed at Malaga in 2018/19, as he helped them reach the Segunda Liga playoffs.
They eventually lost in the final to Deportivo La Coruna, but the youngster’s impact didn’t go unnoticed.
2019/20 Premier League: Norwich City's first 5 fixtures
It’s a daunting return to the Premier League for Norwich City, who head to European champions Liverpool on August 9th – a Friday night game.
Anything other than defeat would be a bonus, considering the Reds’ brilliance under Jurgen Klopp.
An easier game follows, as Carrow Road hosts its first top flight game since 2016.
Newcastle United are the visitors on August 17th, with the Magpies in turmoil after Rafa Benitez’s exit.
It’s Chelsea up next at Carrow Road (August 24th), in what should be a great atmosphere.
Now managed by Frank Lampard, it will be interesting to see how the Blues fare, considering they are serving a two-window transfer ban.
West Ham (a)
Norwich finish the month with a trip to West Ham (August 31st), who are contenders to finish seventh in 2019/20.
It won’t be easy for the Canaries, but a positive result would be a real statement of intent.
Man City (h)
Once the first international break is done and dusted, Manchester City head to Carrow Road (September 14th).
Pep Guardiola’s side are arguably the best in Europe currently, so this will be a huge test for Daniel Farke’s men.
