Norwich City are interested in signing AFC Bournemouth midfielder Philip Billing this summer, according to Alan Nixon.
Bournemouth failed to join Norwich and Watford in making an immediate return to the Premier League last season, and may now be forced into selling some of their saleable assets.
David Brooks and Arnaut Danjuma are likely to attract interest, as is Philip Billing after an impressive campaign in the Championship.
The Denmark international made 34 league appearances last season, scoring eight goals and chipping in with four assists from central midfield.

Billing has another three years left on his deal after joining on a five-year deal from Huddersfield in 2019 for £15million.
But according to Alan Nixon, Norwich are now showing an interest in Billing and are keen to bring him to Carrow Road this summer.
It is claimed that a fee of £10million would be enough to tempt Bournemouth into selling, with the Cherries willing to cash in this summer.
Norwich’s sporting director, Stuart Webber, will know Billing well from their time at Huddersfield, and a reunion could well take place ahead of next season.
Billing is a real powerhouse who could add some much-needed depth to Norwich’s midfield.
The Canaries have brought in Billy Gilmour on loan from Chelsea, but Alex Tettey and Mario Vrancic both left the club at the end of last season, and Tettey’s presence in the middle of the park needs to be replaced.
Billing is an imposing figure who also adds real goal threat from midfield, having played in a number 10 role for large parts of last season.
