Norwich City’s sporting director Stuart Webber has had meetings with the head of recruitment, Kieran Scott, over the January transfer window.
Webber revealed he held a five-hour-long meeting with Scott over targets for the next two transfer windows.
He said: “I met him for five hours to go through January and next summer, of certain players and certain targets, what do we have to do next and when can we start the process of getting permission to speak to the player and all those sorts of things.” (Source: Pink Un)
The Norwich City chief recently signed a new three-year contract at Carrow Road with his new deal expiring in 2022.
Norwich City’s performances are really starting to shed some light on how brutally thin their squad is from a quality and a personnel perspective. Moves will need to be made in the January transfer window if the club is serious about staying in the league, especially in defensive areas.
The Canaries have already conceded 21 goals in just eight games in the Premier League this season, at a rate of over 2.5 goals a game. However, more shockingly is the number of times Daniel Farke’s side have conceded two-plus goals in a league game this campaign, which has occurred in seven of the eight league games.
On the injury front, Norwich still have centre-backs Timm Klose, Christoph Zimmermann and Grant Hanley out, with the Scotland international out for two months after groin surgery (via Pink Un). This proves extremely worrying as that is three of the club’s four centre-back options out with long-term injuries (via Transfermarkt).
Trying to stay up with mass injuries in an area of the pitch which is your weakest could be classed as a near-enough impossible task. Money will need to be spent by Webber and his transfer committee if the Canaries have realistic hopes of being a top-flight side next season.
