Norwich City made their first splash in the transfer market after losing their star man, Emiliano Buendia, and they appear to have found a great bargain in Milot Rashica who should be playing at a much bigger club than Norwich, according to Get German Football News editor in chief, Daniel Pinder.
Rashica often impressed at Werder Bremen and was even linked with a move to Aston Villa last summer, but after failing to secure a move to the Premier League he had a tough season with several injuries restricting his impact on the pitch.
Will Rashica be a good signing for Norwich?
It is no coincidence that Rashica’s most injury-plagued campaign at Werder Bremen coincided with his club being relegated from the Bundesliga and once their fate was confirmed for next season, Rashica’s future obviously lay away from Germany.
The Kosovan international was signed by Norwich for just £9.4 million and that could prove to be the bargain of the summer if he lives up to the high standards that he set with Bremen, as Pinder explained exclusively to Transfer Tavern that the winger should be playing for a top-half Premier League club:
“I thought you were looking at [Premier League teams who could have signed Rashica] teams just below challenging for European football so maybe someone like Everton, but I would certainly have said a club in the top six or eight.”
Rashica made 100 appearances during his time with Bremen and during that time he netted 27 goals and registered 19 assists and the Kosovan will look to emulate how Buendia became a crucial cog under Daniel Farke and a huge fan favourite.
The 24-year-old’s willingness to back himself in any one-on-one should provide a lot of excitement at Carrow Road but also, his ability to sometimes play through the middle as a second striker could provide some much-needed help to Teemu Pukki if his performances for Finland at the Euros are anything to go by.
