Norwich City are one of the clubs interested in signing midfielder Stjepan Loncar from Croatian giants Rijeka, a report from Bosnian outlet SportSport, via The Eastern Daily Press, has claimed.
Loncar joined Rijeka from Siroki Brijeg in his native Bosnia back in the summer of 2018, and has since gone on to make 112 appearances in all competitions for the club, winning two Croatian Cups in that time.
The 24-year-old has also been capped nine times by Bosnia and Herzegovina at senior international level, and it now seems as though he is starting to attract plenty of attention from elsewhere.
According to this latest update, Norwich are among the clubs who are interested in a move for the central midfielder, ahead of the summer transfer window.
Italian second-tier side Monza are also said to taking a keen interest in Loncar, while unnamed clubs from Spain are also thought to be tracking the 24-year-old.
Which club do these 21 former Norwich players play for now?
As things stand, Loncar’s current contract with Rijeka is set to expire this summer, although the club do have the option to extend his deal by a further two years, effectively securing his future in Croatia until the end of the 2022/23 season.
This could be a good signing for Norwich if they are able to pull it off.
With Alex Tettey’s contract having expired, and Oliver Skipp’s loan from Tottenham having come to an end, the Canaries do need to add to their midfield ranks this summer.
Given the experience that Loncar has with Rijeka, which has seen him make an impact in the Europa League, and at international level with Bosnia and Herzegovina, he could be a decent candidate to fill that role.
You also feel that Norwich’s situation means they may be confident of getting this deal done following promotion meaning it could be one well worth looking into for the Carrow Road club.
