‘Not yet’, ‘Massive future ahead’ – Norwich City man being eyed by Man Utd and Arsenal – Opinion



Norwich City are right on course to win promotion back to the Premier League after dispatching local rivals Ipswich today.

The Canaries are now top of the pile and with a gap to third placed Sheffield United, and manager Daniel Farke will be confident of taking his team into the top flight.

There’s been some key men for Norwich this term too who have been hugely impressive in their performances, and one such player who falls into this category is defender Ben Godfrey.

However, such has been Godfrey’s form, that the Mirror is now claiming that both Man United and Arsenal want to sign the 21-year-old.

But just how good is Godfrey, and is he actually ready for the Premier League just yet? We asked our writers here at FLW for their thoughts…

Gary Hutchinson


“Not yet anyway.

“He’d be another one of those trophy players, big-money buy who doesn’t break through for ages.

“Think Nick Powell. He’ll be best staying put.”

Lee Connor

‘I’ve not seen enough to give a definitive opinion but he must be doing something right mustn’t he?

“The problem here is how do you realistically turn down a move to a club like the ones mentioned?

“I doubt Godfrey is top four material just yet, but whether that makes a difference is another matter”.

George Harbey

“I wouldn’t say he’s ready just yet, but he’s certainly got a massive future ahead of him.
“Godfrey has been very impressive for Norwich this season, and they have really developed him as a player after impressing at Shrewsbury last term.
“I just hope for his benefit that he earns regular game-time in the top flight if he did move, rather than just rot on the bench.”
