The Liverpool winger was expected to leave Anfield for Bristol City but Norwich City are now said to be keen.

Sergi Canos' proposed transfer from Liverpool to Bristol City is under threat after Norwich City entered the running for his signature, the Echo reports.

The same publication reported earlier in the week that Canos was set to join the Robins, whose £2.5 million had been accepted by the Reds.

However, alleged interest from recently relegated Norwich is said to have prompted the Spaniard to stall over his potential exit.

Canos spent last season on loan to Championship side Brentford, impressing. However, the 19-year-old's apparent £10,000-a-week wages demands are said to have scuppered his chances of a permanent move to Griffin Park, while an agreement with Liverpool could also not be reached.

And that prompted Bristol City, who avoided relegation following Lee Johnson's February appointment, to launch a move for Canos in the meantime - offering, reportedly, a sizeable sell-on clause and buy-back option.

But the sale of England Under-21 star Nathan Redmond to Southampton - who replaces, ironically, new Liverpool signing Sadio Mane on the South Coast - and anticipated exit of Ireland ace Robbie Brady to Leicester City means Norwich are also in the market for a new wide man this summer.

And the Echo reports that the Canaries' immediate promotion ambitions could convince Canos to move South East rather than South West.
