Five players that Norwich City should target in the January transfer window – Do you agree?

Craig MacGillivray

With Tim Krul sidelined throughout December through injury, Northern Ireland international Michael McGovern proved a worthy understudy, defying some critical fans.

However, the 36-year-old is out of contract this summer and evidently a younger, stronger back-up keeper is required sooner rather than later. Portsmouth’s Craig MacGillivray could prove that player.

The Scot has provided the defensive foundation for a strong season in which the South Coast side have conceded just 15 goals in 19 league matches. Bigger and more commanding than McGovern, the 27-year-old Pompey number one would represent a genuine challenge to Krul, who is arguably lacking a back-up capable of sufficiently pushing him to his limit.

Additionally, this is a highly viable financial option given Portsmouth’s third tier status.
