Norwich City boss Chris Hughton is reported to be keeping track of Slovenian striker Robert Beric, who played against his Birmingham team last year.
The Canaries boss has the option of revamping his striking options in January and is said to have been been kept up to date with Beric’s progress since he featured in the Europa League against the Blues last season.
The 21-year-old caught the eye for NK Maribor when he scored in their Europa League clash against Tottenham and has also now made the step up from under-21 level to full international football.
Beric has scored four times in 10 starts in his domestic league and has managed two in three in the Europa League this season. Various newspapers and football websites report Norwich’s interest, suggesting Aston Vill and Championship clubs Leicester City and Cardiff City are also keen on Beric with the Welsh club hoping to pair him up with his former Maribor strike partner, Etien Velikonja.
