Why it makes perfect sense for Caixinha to seal a deal for this international striker in the summer

Published

After a disappointing campaign, a number of players seem set to leave Norwich City this summer when their contracts in expire in June.

Players will be free to talk to clubs from this date, and big name players including Youssouf Mulumbu, Sebastien Bassong and John Ruddy look unlikely to line up at Carrow Road next season.

Another player set to leave the club is Northern Ireland striker, Kyle Lafferty.

The 29-year-old joined the Canaries from Italian side, Palermo, in 2014, but has struggled to establish himself in the side.

Only two goals in 31 appearances, the forward has been shipped off to both Birmingham City and Turkish side, Caykur Rizespor, during his time in Norfolk.

Lafferty may not have tasted much success with his club side, but internationally, the player has flourished.

A number of key goals for Northern Ireland fired the tiny nation to their first international tournament since 1982.

With a realistic chance of qualifying for the World Cup in Russia next year, the Green and White Army will rely on their talismanic striker to guide them to glory.

During a four year spell in Scotland with Rangers, Lafferty also became a legend.

In recent days, Gers fans have called for manager, Pedro Caixinha, to bring the player back to the club.

Rangers have struggled since returning to the SPFL, and the gulf between them and fierce rivals Celtic is widening.

Lafferty himself has admitted he would be open to a return to his old club, and all that remains is for Caixinha to make an offer.

Fans will hope a player of Lafferty’s ability will help to bridge the gap, and make their beloved side a title contender once more.

A move north of the border would be perfect for Lafferty, and would present the perfect opportunity to cement his role in the Northern Ireland set up.

Goals and opportunities will be much easier to come by in Scotland, and Lafferty is fully expected to make the move back to Ibrox.
