Worrying news for Norwich after Premier League interest in star man

Published

The Mirror live blog (14:22) has reported that Huddersfield Town are preparing a third bid for Norwich City playmaker Alex Pritchard. 

The report states that David Wagner has already had two bids rejected for the former Tottenham man but is looking to tempt the Canaries into doing business during the January transfer window.

Pritchard’s time at Carrow Road has been blighted by injury but he got his first goal of the season on Boxing Day in a 2-0 win over Birmingham City to ease the pressure on manager Daniel Farke.

The England Under 21 star cost Norwich £8.5m when he joined the club from Spurs in August 2016 and Norwich are looking to, at the very least, get their money back as their parachute payments finish at the end of this season.

Wagner is in the market to replace Kasey Palmer, who saw his loan spell at the John Smith Stadium cut short by parent club Chelsea.

The Verdict:

Pritchard is a class act and would fancy his chances of forcing his way ahead of Huddersfield’s current wide options if he did make the move to the Premier League.

At 24, time is still on his side and he has the talent to make it in the Premier League – somewhere Norwich will not be next season based on their performances so far this campaign.

It would be a huge blow for Farke, who needs all of his best assets if he is to turn Norwich around and emulate Wagner as a German manager who takes his side into the Premier League in his first job in English football.

Norwich fans – how much of a blow would it be to see Pritchard leave? Let us know in the comments below…
