Norwich City to make non-negotiable offer for Championship star



Premier League side Norwich City have made a non-negotiable offer for Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Benik Afobe, according to the Express and Star

Will Benik Afobe leave for Norwich in the January transfer window?

Will Benik Afobe leave for Norwich in the January transfer window?

The Canaries made an offer for the England Under-21 striker in August, totalling £10 million, which was rejected as they failed to meet the £15 million asking price set by manager Kenny Jackett.

However, the 22-year-old has lost his place in the first team this season, gazumped by Cardiff City loanee Adam Le Fondre, but has still made 24 appearances and netted ten goals so far this season.

He scored 13 goals in half a season at the club last year, after signing permanently from Arsenal following a successful loan spell at MK Dons.

The Canaries are returning for him in January as they look to add goals to their Premier League survival bid, as their strikers fail to find goals regularly in the top-flight.

Manager Alex Neil will give the club a £12 million ‘take it or leave it offer’, although that is still three million off the asking price.

Wolves are 17th in the Championship table after a 4-1 defeat at Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday, which was the club’s second defeat in a row.

They will likely need Afobe to stave off any threat of relegation, but the promise of Premier League football may be too much for him to turn down.

Wolves fans… what do you make of this news? Will Afobe leave? Is £12 million enough money? Or is Adam Le Fondre better? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
