Should Norwich City Reignite Their Interest In Signing This 11 Goal Forward In The Summer?

After a demotion from the Premier League last season, it was believed that Norwich City’s stay in the Championship would be a short one. Prior to the commencement of the ongoing campaign, the Canaries were perceived as one of the staunch favourites to get uplifted back to the top tier of English football. However, the existing scenario appears to have moulded in stark contrast to such presumptions.

Norwich City outclassed Barnsley last weekend which came as a huge sigh of relief because the victory was thoroughly a very much needed one. After a miserable spell of failing to register even a solitary win in their last six games prior to hosting Paul Heckingbottom’s outfit at the Carrow Road, the Yellow Army have severely diluted their credentials of being playoff hopefuls as they are as many as 5 points adrift of sixth-placed Sheffield Wednesday in the League chart.

Irrespective of whether they get promoted or not, Norwich City should start sounding out their prospective targets for the summer transfer window and one of the faces they can definitely keep under their radar for scrutiny is FC Utrecht’s prolific hitman Sebastien Haller. The 22-year-old striker was linked to the Championship club in the January transfer window but the deal failed to cross the line and frankly speaking, whosoever become the next gaffer of Norwich City, he should try to get this youngster yet again on behalf of the club.

Haller has been in a decent nick so far in the Eredivisie, banging 11 goals, registering 4 assists and making 1.5 key passes every game on an average and has emerged as one of the hottest properties which the Dutch top tier has on offer. Having started his senior career with French outfit Auxerre, the France Under21 hasn’t been bereft of goals whilst plying his trade at the club level or the junior level for Les Bleus’. Norwich City does boast of having Cameron Jerome and Nelson Oliveira in their ranks but the addition of Haller should take the aura of their attacking arsenal to a whole new level.

The gifted striker possesses a top-notch aerial ability, has a well-structured physique to hold the ball well, embraces his defensive duties with sheer professionalism and is a thoroughly reliable poacher up front. The Canaries are now breathing life at the absence of Alex Neil who was sacked by the club lately and luring someone of high calibre like Haller could only reap benefits for them, in the long run, owing to the attributes he has put on display so far in his career.
