Sky Bet Championship side Norwich City is set to battle Premier League side West Bromwich Albion for Peterborough United midfielder Chris Forrester, according to the Irish Independent.

Having moved from the Republic of Ireland to England, Forrester has made a seamless transition, and his excellent performances for Peterborough United has attracted attention from the Championship and even the Premier League.

The versatile midfielder can play both in an advanced role or in a more disciplined box-to-box midfield role, which is one of a number of impressive features of Forrester’s game.

After another impressive performance against Chelsea in the FA Cup, Norwich City and West Bromwich Albion are set to step up their interest in the cultured Irish midfielder.

Both teams have sent scouts to watch Forrester over the past couple of weeks and Peterborough now may be bracing themselves, as both Alex Neil and Tony Pulis ready bids for the Peterborough captain.

Peterborough has developed a reputation of signing hidden gems and turning them over for a large profit, Chris Forrester could be next in line to leave the ABAX Stadium.
