Norwich City eyeing up January move for striker

Norwich City are interested in a move for French forward Aldo Kalulu, according to reports in France Football.

The 21-year-old striker is currently on loan at Ligue 2 side Sochaux from Lyon, but could be available in the new year should the French giants decide to sell the player on a permanent basis.

A former France U18 international, the player is held in high-regard in his homeland, but with a plethora of attacking talent currently on the books at Lyon, the path to the first-team at The Groupama Stadium is extremely crowded.

Sochaux lie in eighth position in the second tier of French football, with Kalulu more often than not chosen as the first-choice striker at the club.

Four goals in nineteen appearances so far this season, the youngster has also managed three senior league goals for his parent club since his debut in 2015.

The Verdict

Kalulu is a talented young striker with bags of potential, and could prove to find the English game suited to his skillset.

However, the Frenchman has a lot to prove, and his signing would be a serious gamble by manager Daniel Farke.

Kalulu is yet to enjoy a run of goalscoring form, and his four goals in Ligue 2 is hardly a stat that will jump out to Norwich fans.

His five-foot-five frame also gives cause for concern, as despite his pace, fears will undoubtedly persist over his ability to compete in a much more physical league.

The player should be available for a relatively nominal fee, but it would be a gamble by Farke to rely on the youngster to help turn his side’s season around.

Norwich fans, does Kalulu look like he is worth the punt? Or is a more established star required? Have your say below…
