Norwich City showed precisely why they shouldn’t be written off, after securing a comprehensive 3-1 victory over Newcastle United on the weekend. The Canaries are among the most interesting teams in the league, with a bunch of former Bundesliga players. Manager Daniel Farke has also implemented an attractive attacking style of football that has raised many eyebrows over the past 12 months.

In this article, we will discuss three more Bundesliga stars Norwich City should consider signing in the January transfer window.

Philipp Max

Farke should consider adding more depth to this left-back department, with Jamal Lewis being the only viable option in the said role. The 21-year-old has done really well for the club of late. But, signing someone like Philipp Max could serve as a significant boost.

The Augsburg defender is arguably the best crosser in the Bundesliga, having notably registered 13 assists during the 2017/18 campaign. He can provide extensive support from the left-flank while he is also quite proficient in set-pieces. Hence, the 25-year old’s addition to the squad could be extremely beneficial for the likes of Teemu Pukki and co.

Max is also keen to leave Augsburg this summer, which should make him a relatively easy target for Norwich. However, he mustn’t leave the club this summer as the transfer window in England is already closed.

Vladimir Darida

With Alexander Tettey almost in the final phase of his career, Norwich City must sign a new midfielder in January. Vladimir Darida, in that regard, should be an excellent choice given his athleticism and tenacity in the middle third of the pitch.

Indeed, the Czech international is a box to box midfielder, who can cover a lot of ground. He is also keen on winning back possession for his team, which is coupled with his vicious right foot that makes him a threat from long-range. 

Darida has lost his place in the starting lineup following the emergence of Marko Grujic as well as the signing of Eduard Lowen. Therefore, the 29-year-old will be looking for a move away from the German capital. And Norwich City could be an ideal destination.

Ahmed Kutucu

Ahmed Kutucu is currently one of the most promising talents playing in the Bundesliga. However, the Schalke youngster hasn’t really managed to make his breakthrough into senior football as former coach Domenico Tedesco didn’t rate him that much. But, with Breel Embolo leaving the club this summer, the Turkish might be offered the opportunity to make an impact under new coach David Wagner this season.

Kutucu could be an exciting signing for Norwich as he can not only provide backup for Pukki but can also emerge as a potential first-team option. And at the age of 19, he will be a smart long-term investment for the Canaries as they look to maintain their Premier League status in the years to come.
