Having been appointed in the aftermath of Norwich’s disappointing end to last season in which the Canaries finished outside the top six, Daniel Farke’s competitive debut as manager of Norwich City Football Club has been a long time coming, but will finally take place when the Canaries travel to Fulham this weekend.
Farke has made a number of signings this summer, including Marley Watkins and James Husband from Barnsley and Middlesbrough respectively, but departures from Carrow Road have come in equal measure.
The midfield has been worse hit, with the likes of Josh Murphy, Graham Dorrans, Youssouf Mulumbu and Jonny Howson all departing Carrow Road in the past months, and it is time Farke began to address the issue before the window slams shut.
One man he may consider who would represent an affordable option is in a similar mould to skilful creative man, Wes Hoolahan, but could operate in the wide role vacated by Murphy.
Scunthorpe’s Josh Morris had a remarkable campaign last season, and helped the Iron to an unlikely third place finish in League One.
Morris scored 19 goals and provided a further 17 assists, and was second to only Billy Sharp in terms of involvement in goals.
The 25-year-old has proven he is ready to take the next step, and it is remarkable that he has not already been snapped up by a second tier side this summer.
The player would add a new dimension to the Norwich attack, and his phenomenal input in front of goal would make an 85 goal Norwich side from last season even deadlier.
If Norwich can tie up a deal for the player in the coming weeks, the Canaries strength in the attacking positions would be seriously amplified overnight.
What other areas of the field need strengthening at Carrow Road this summer, Canaries fans?
