Huddersfield Town manager David Wagner admitted he “likes” Norwich City playmaker Alex Pritchard and discussed the prospect of signing the Englishman in the January transfer window, according to the Huddersfield Daily Examiner.
There have been reports in recent days that the Yorkshire side have an interest in the England Under 21 star but Wagner stated that he does not want to overpay for the player – as is sometimes the case when a British player changes hands.
Pritchard has made just eight league appearances for the Canaries this season, finding the back of the net just once – and laying on two assists as the pressure has built on German manager Daniel Farke.
Pritchard cost Norwich a fair chunk of money when he signed permanently from Tottenham Hotspur – £8m – and the club has stuck with him through his struggles with injury and loss of form.
They are going to want to get a considerable amount of money back in for him as they will also be wary that their parachute payments come to and end when the current campaign finishes.
Pritchard has the talent to cut it in the Premier League and given that Norwich look very unlikely to get up there this season, his head could well be turned.
Norwich fans – what is a fair price for Pritchard in your opinion? Let us know what you think in the comments below…
