Neil Adams may be out in Italy but Norwich City will not be caught napping in their transfer market dealings.
The Canaries' boss and technical director Ricky Martin are in constant contact with chief executive David McNally from their Chatillon Saint Vincent training base in northern Italy during the nine-day stay.
Norwich missed out on Coventry striker Callum Wilson, who opted to join Championship rivals Bournemouth, as they looked to bring in further attacking reinforcements alongside Lewis Grabban and Kyle Lafferty earlier this summer.
City have yet to make any further additions ahead of the Championship kick-off at Wolves on August 10 but Adams revealed the groundwork had stepped up a gear in recent days.
'Just because we are abroad doesn't mean a transfer can not happen. You are only a phone call away,' he said. 'In that sense it could happen any day.

'We have the feelers out, we are constantly looking, we're on the iPads out here watching players and we have scouts out looking at the games now the pre-season friendlies are getting into full swing.
'I keep saying it but if we can do something and it is right for us then we will do it.'

Adams will put the majority of City's 24-man squad through their paces on Wednesday evening during an open training session for travelling supporters in place of the second scheduled game of their tour against Livorno which has bee shelved.
The Norwich boss made his feelings clear regarding the standard of opposition following City's opening tour match against a select side which turned into a 13-0 practice rout, but with a game on Friday against French Ligue One side SC Bastia to round off the trip Adams insists City's training camp will carry lasting benefits.
'This is a fantastic place and everyone who has come out here can see that,' he said. 'It is important you get away and build that spirit and you can see how well the players are getting along. They were taking the mickey out of each other in the stands during the game, but I accept it is important we prepare right and we have tougher tests than we have had so far.'
