Premier League strugglers Norwich City will be hoping that Dudelange goal-machine Daniel Sinani can fire them back out of the Championship next season.

Daniel Sinani appears to be on his way to Norwich City at the end of the season with the F91 Dudelange star telling Le Quotiden that he is in ‘advanced’ negotiations with the Premier League strugglers.

Perhaps if The Canaries had snapped up a deal to bring a prolific goalscorer to Carrow Road during the January transfer window, they would be a little closer to the chasing pack.

Daniel Farke’s side were heavily linked with Sinani last month, via The Mail, but have now slipped seven points adrift of safety. Their spell in the Premier League looks like little more than a flying visit with a return to the Championship looming on the horizon.

 

Not that Norwich’s seemingly inevitable relegation has put Sinani off the idea of swapping Luxembourg for Anglia in the off-season.

“I can confirm that Norwich is really interested in my services,” said a 22-year-old who will become a free agent in the summer.

“I did not sign (in January) but I will say that we are on the right track in the discussions. One thing is certain: I will no longer play in Luxembourg in 2020/2021. As I said, things are very advanced with Norwich.

“They absolutely want me, but we have to see how things can or will be finalized. I have not yet visited the facilities, but (the trip) is planned.”

Sinani adds that he is ‘not afraid’ of joining a club heading back to the second tier, pointing out that the English second tier is stronger than many a top-flight across Europe.

And if the explosive attacker can replicate the kind of form he has produced for Dudelange this season, with 24 goals in 27 games in all competitions, Sinani could prove to be yet another bargain buy straight out of the Stuart Webber playbook.
