Norwich City have been linked with a move for Exeter City starlet Ollie Watkins come the summer.

The 21-year-old forward has scored 11 goals in 35 appearances for the Grecians this season and was January's League Two player of the month.

Now the £2m-rated forward has been touted as a Canaries target by The Sun – along with City's Championship rivals Derby, who were also linked with Watkins during the Janaury transfer window.

League one title-chasers Sheffield United are also said to be interested in the Exeter youngster, who has been at St James Park since the age of nine.

The Devon-born forward has worked his way through the youth system at Exeter and was at his productive best last month, scoring two goals and making five more during his five appearances for the high-flying Grecians.
