Norwich City face an uphill task to keep Teemu Pukki next season

Norwich City’s rise under Daniel Farke doesn’t seem to be ending any time soon.

After pulling off another impressive away win, this time at the Den, by defeating Millwall 3-1, the Canaries take a step closer to the Premier League.

However, the face of their exciting season has been striker Teemu Pukki, who’s taken the Championship by storm.

The Finland striker scored his 24th goal of the season on Saturday, helping his side climb back to first place. Pukki’s proven to be the complete package to boost Norwich’s promotion campaign, using his pace, clever movement and lethal striker’s instincts to score past more than half of the Championship sides.

Pukki’s latest against Millwall was another display of his intelligence, as he moved past his man to create a gap and score calmly. The striker’s finishing ability is undoubtedly the best in the league and can be a revelation for them in the Premier League next season too.

However, it’ll be a gigantic task for the Canaries to keep him. At the rate he’s scoring in, many sides will coming sniffing for his services.

Surely, if it’s a relatively big one, it’ll be difficult for Pukki to decline them.

Norwich needs to give him more assurances to convince him to reject the lucrative offers, either by showing more ambitions or giving him a better contract.

Pukki can be the driving force for them to have a promising Premier League campaign next season, but if he leaves, finding a similarly impactful striker can be extremely problematic.
