Norwich City are reportedly interested in signing Bordeaux winger Mehdi Zerkane this summer, as Daniel Farke looks to strengthen his squad.
The Lowdown: Additions needed for PL return
The Canaries have sealed a return back to the Premier League, with Farke’s side clinching title glory in the Championship and playing superb football along the way.
Despite this, there is no denying that reinforcements are needed, in order for Norwich to avoid relegation this time around.
Is Darren Huckerby a worthy inclusion in Norwich's Hall of Fame?
The Latest: Norwich interested in Zerkane
Do you think Wes Hoolahan was Norwich's best player of the 2010s?
The Verdict: An exciting option
His statistics are actually eerily similar to rising Canaries starlet Adam Idah – Zerkane manages 0.6 shots, 0.5 key passes and 0.6 dribbles per game, while Idah musters 0.8 shots, 0.4 key passes and 0.6 dribbles.
This all suggests he would fit into Norwich’s fast-paced, ball-playing style and his long-term potential means he is someone Farke could build into a top player.
That being said, more established players are required if the Canaries are to remain in the Premier League, with youngsters not enough to take them up another level.
