Report: Swansea's Nathan Dyer a target for newly-promoted Norwich

Norwich City are reportedly interested in taking Swansea City winger Nathan Dyer to Carrow Road.

According to Wales Online, Norwich City are reportedly interested in taking Nathan Dyer to Carrow Road, as they prepare for a return to life in the Premier League.

Dyer started last season well and was touted for a place in Roy Hodgson's England squad before falling out of favour and he now has a battle on his hands for first-team action at the Liberty Stadium.

Having seen the Swans bring in Andre Ayew from Marseille to add to their wide options alongside the likes of Jefferson Montero and Wayne Routledge, the chances of first-team football look even less likely. However, The Mirror suggests he is willing to fight for his place.

What does Nathan Dyer have to offer Norwich City?

Dyer ended the previous campaign having made 32 appearances, while hitting the back of the net on three occasions. Impressively, no Swansea player proved more accurate from his attempts at goal last term.

The Englishman’s strengths are in his direct attacking style, but he is also a very capable distributor of the ball. He successfully completed 85% of his attempted passes last term, while recording 22 key passes in total.

Norwich are already well accounted for out wide, with England under-21 winger Nathan Redmond on the right and former Leeds man Bradley Johnson on the left. Nonetheless, Dyer's Premier League experience could prove invaluable as the Canaries look to reinstate themselves as a permanent top-flight fixture.
