Norwich City’s Josh Murphy is wanted by Crystal Palace and Leicester City.
A report in the Mirror claims City may be forced to sell the winger because of financial issues, and that the Premier League clubs are monitoring the situation.
The 23-year-old scored a stunning goal-of-the-season contender at the weekend during the 3-1 win over Aston Villa, taking his tally to 10 league and cup goals for the season, from 36 starts.
Murphy – like twin brother Jacob – began his career in City’s youth set-up and is under contract with the Canaries until the summer of 2021.
Jacob left City for Newcastle last summer for around £12 million and if City were to sell, it’s likely they would be hoping for a transfer fee in the same sort of ballpark.
