Report: Norwich City make bid for Palermo midfielder Oscar Hiljemark

Norwich Carrow Road 2

Norwich City have already made a number of transfers in the January window.

According to a report on Sky Sports, Norwich City have bid for Palermo midfielder Oscar Hiljemark.

Norwich are keen to strengthen every area of their squad in January, and Hiljemark has reportedly become one of Alex Neil’s targets.

The Canaries have submitted an offer for the 23-year-old, but the deal is some way off being completed at this stage.

Palermo are said to be determined to keep hold of Hiljemark, and they are unlikely to listen to offers in January.

The Swedish international has played a key part for the Serie A side this term, featuring 23 times in all competitions and impressing.

Norwich believe that Hiljemark would increase their quality in midfield, and Neil is attempting to push through a deal, although Watford are also interested.

The Canaries have already signed the likes of Timm Klose, Ivo Pinto and Steven Naismith in what has been a busy month for Neil’s side.
