Norwich City supporters are split over the future of striker Nelson Oliveira.

The Portugal international has been the focus of Canaries conversations since the weekend arrival of Teemu Pukki, potentially paving the way for Oliveira to be sold.

The Finland striker is expected to compete for a place with January signing Dennis Srbeny but Oliveira’s form last season means a fresh start for the former Benfica man could be on the cards.

The 26-year-old scored a total of eight goals in 40 games was a disappointing return for a forward who had shown great promise with 12 in 30 matches during his first season with the Canaries.

Swansea reportedly bid £12m for the City striker last August, when they were still a Premier League club, but re-signed Wilfried Bony from Manchester City for that fee on deadline day in the end.

Our poll asking how much Oliveira should be sold for this summer saw 23 percent of over 1,800 voters saying they hoped the forward would remain with the club.

But a quarter of voters would accept an offer between £2m and £4m, another quarter between £4m and £6m, and 11pc would be happy to move Oliveira on for less than £2m.


How much would you sell Nelson Oliveira for this summer?

• I wouldn’t, he can rediscover his form at City – 23pc

• Less than £2m – 11pc

• £2m to £4m – 25pc

• £4m to £6m – 25pc

• £6m to £8m – 11pc

• £8m to £10m – 4pc

• £10m+ – 1pc
