Premier League duo Brighton & Hove Albion and Fulham and Middlesbrough are lining up moves for Norwich attacker Josh Murphy, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Norwich are bracing themselves for offers for Murphy during this summer's transfer window with the winger regarded as one of the most exciting players outside the Premier League.

Murphy contributed seven goals and three assists for Norwich last season and his performances over the last couple of seasons have won him admirers higher up the football pyramid.

The 23-year-old, who came through the Canaries' academy, saw his twin brother, Jacob Murphy, make the move from Norwich to the Premier League last summer when he joined Newcastle United in a deal worth around £12million and Josh is expected to follow suit sooner rather than later.

Brighton boss Chris Hughton is a big admirer of Murphy having been in charge of Norwich when he was coming through the youth set-up at Carrow Road and feels he would be a valuable addition to his Brighton side for next season.

Premier League new boys Fulham are also keen on Murphy as they look to strengthen their squad ahead of next season, while Championship hopefuls Middlesbrough are looking to add to their attacking options as they aim to build a side capable of winning promotion to the Premier League next season.

Norwich are reluctant to lose one of their prized assets, but they are expecting firm offers for the former England Under-20 international this summer.
