Norwich City are preparing to lodge a bid in the region of £7 million for Nottingham Forest’s richly talented prolific striker Britt Assombalonga, according to the Sun via the Nottingham Post.
Following Norwich City’s lone season in the Premier League, Alex Neil is looking to build to his squad to ensure that it is capable of competing in the Championship.
It is apparent that Neil is looking to bolster his attacking options as Alex Neil has used both Kyle Lafferty and Ricky van Wolfswinkel sparingly. This leaves Cameron Jerome being Neil’s only reliable striker.
Britt Assombalonga is one of the most highly coveted and highly rated strikers in the Championship and in the entirety of the Football League.
Assombalonga’s season was cut short when he suffered a long-term injury but his return to Nottingham Forest’s senior side resulted in him scoring the winner on the final day of the season.
Recent reports are suggesting that Alex Neil is preparing a bid of around £7 million to attempt to prise Britt Assombalonga away from Nottingham Forest.
