‘This would be a surprising signing’ – Norwich line-up bid for exciting attacker: Opinion



Following their title-winning season in the Championship, Norwich City will be keen to establish themselves in the Premier League.

They go into the top-flight with a  host of excellent attacking options with Emi Buendia, Onel Hernandez, Marco Stiepermann and Teemu Pukki all having outstanding campaigns.

But Daniel Farke is not about to rest on his laurels.

According to the London Evening Standard, he is interested in bringing Brentford’s 25-goal striker Neal Maupay to Carrow Road to increase the competition.

But would he be a good signing for the Canaries?

“This would be a surprising signing for me.

“After such a great season, Maupay is likely to cost a lot of money, and rightfully so as he’s been tremendous in front of goal for Brentford.

“But Norwich don’t seem like a club who will go out there and pay over the odds for a player, and the Frenchman is still unproven in the Premier League.”

Jacob Potter 

“I’m not sure they need him.

“Norwich already have Teemu Pukki up-front, and I’m not sure Maupay would get in the starting XI ahead of the Finland international.

“There are cheaper, and more experienced options available to the Canaries as they look to settle in the Premier League.”

Toby Wilding 

“This feels like a bit of a risk.

“Yes Norwich need an alternative to Teemu Pukki, but if they choose Maupay to do that role, they risk entering the season with two striker’s with no experience in the Premier League.

“Like Pukki, Maupay’s goal scoring record this season has been outstanding, but that is no guarantee he will be able to make the step up next season, as plenty of others have previously shown.”
