Norwich City manager Daniel Farke is taking nothing for granted, even though his side sit in second place in the Championship, just two points off leaders Leeds United, as he closes in on a deal to sign Trabzonspor midfielder Yusuf Yazici, according to Sabah Spor on Twitter.
The 21-year-old who has been capped 10 times by the Turkish national team came through the Trabzonspor academy ranks, where he has been since the age of 11.
He made his first-team debut in December 2015 and has gone on to play over 80 games for the Super Lig club.
So would Yazici be a good signing for Norwich?
“It’s a signing that is a little from left field – but look at the Teemu Pukki move, that has so far worked out well.
“If this particular transfer can have the same galvanising effect, then Norwich will be onto another winner in their attacking department.
“The 21-year-old is a Turkish international, so he has some pedigree and is highly thought of.
“With the Premier League the aim, the young attacker could have the hunger to earn a place in the top flight rather than land right in it.
“If that is the case, it’s a good attitude to have, and it all bodes well for the Canaries.”
“It’d be a smart bit of business.
“Although Yazici is an unproven talent in the English game, he could certainly play a starring role in Norwich’s promotion push this season.
“He has the ability to change the course of a game on his own and if he signed for Daniel Farke’s side, I believe he could be the missing piece in the jigsaw for Norwich’s promotion bid.”
