According to the Daily Mail, Norwich City are set to sign Fulham forward Ross McCormack this week.

The report claims the two clubs have been in negotiations for the past couple of weeks but a fee in the region of 12 million has been agreed, with the player keen to make the move.

McCormack joined Fulham from Leeds United two seasons ago, yet despite hopes of playing in the Premier League, the West London club have struggled since being relegated from the top-flight.

The Scotland international is widely regarded as one of the best players outside the Premier League, and the amount of goals he is capable of scoring has attracted plenty of interest in his services.

Norwich are back in the second tier following their relegation from the top-flight, yet the Canaries have no intentions of sticking around for long as Alex Neil targets an immediate promotion.

The Canaries have kept the majority of the squad that suffered relegation last term, and adding a goal scorer in McCormack to their ranks will make them among the favourites for a top two spot this season.

The 29-year-old has netted 42 goals in his last two campaigns at Craven Cottage, and Neil will be hopeful he can strike up a formiddable partnership with Cameron Jerome and Steven Naismith.

The report goes on to say that McCormack believes Norwich are equipped for promotion, and seemingly agreeing personal terms with the club won’t be too much of a problem.
