Norwich City have reportedly joined the race to sign Argentine sensation Pedro De la Vega this summer, in what could be a hugely exciting move.
The Lowdown: Norwich eye up additions
Daniel Farke’s side enjoyed a superb 2020/21 season, winning the Championship and sealing a place back in the Premier League.
The key now is to avoid an immediate return to the second tier of English football again, with new signings arguably needed to prevent that from happening, especially after a deal was agreed to send Emi Buendia to Aston Villa.

The Latest: De La Vega linked with Canaries move
The Canaries and Fiorentina are believed to be the latest teams to enter the race to sign De la Vega, with Leeds United also mentioned in the report.
No bid has been placed for the 20-year-old yet, but it does appear as though there is genuine interest from Norwich.

The Verdict: Hugely exciting prospect
While De la Vega may still be fairly unproven, signing him for a rumoured €10million (£8.5m) could end up being a bargain over time, especially considering he has been linked (Goal.com) with a move to Manchester City in the past. The youngster has even been compared to a ‘right footed version‘ of PSG superstar Angel Di Maria.
If Norwich managed to snap up De la Vega, the hope is that he could swiftly adjust to life in Europe, thriving in Farke’s ball-playing style of play and making supporters forget all about Buendia.
