Norwich City have been linked with a summer move for NEC Nijmegen wide player Alireza Jahanbakhsh.

The 21-year-old Iranian international is set to leave Holland this summer and Dutch football magazine Voetbal International have touted the Canaries as a possible destination.

Jahanbakhsh can operate on either flank and is highly-rated after a productive campaign for Nijmegen which saw him score 13 goals and credited with 18 assists.

Scottish champions Celtic have reportedly identified Jahanbakhsh as a potential addition after his eye-catching displays for his country at last summer's World Cup finals in Brazil.

Alex Neil was heavily linked with Cardiff City's wide player Craig Noone during the January transfer window, with the Canaries' boss later confirming there was a firm interest in bolstering that part of his squad.
