Fulham striker Ross McCormack is the latest player to be linked with a summer transfer to Norwich City.
The Daily Mail claim the Canaries are “considering” a move for the 28-year-old Scotland international, who signed for the Cottagers for a shock reported fee of £11million last summer.
McCormack was unable to help Fulham shake the hangover of Premier League relegation though, with his 17 league goals helping the west London club to pull away from relegation trouble and finish in 17th place in the final Championship table.
“Norwich City are weighing up a move for Fulham striker Ross McCormack,” the Mail report claims.
“Manager Alex Neil wants to strengthen through the spine of his team and is sifting through potential transfer targets.”
The striker has enjoyed two good seasons at Championship level, scoring 29 goals in 53 games in all competitions for Leeds United in 2013/14, before 19 in 51 for Fulham last season, but is untested in the top flight.
With strikers Cameron Jerome, Lewis Grabban, Gary Hooper and returning loan striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel already on the books at Carrow Road, the Scot seems unlikely to be a huge improvement for City – especially if a fee of anywhere close to £11m is required to sign him.
