The Canaries will hope that a bid of this magnitude could tempt the financially crippled Portuguese side to sell the 24 year old.

Sporting Lisbon have a mountain of debt and could be forced into listening to offers for a number of their top stars this summer.

Van Wolfswinkel rose to prominence with Eredivisie outfit FC Utrecht, scoring 39 goals in his final two seasons at the club, before he secured a move to Sporting. The lethal finisher has adapted well to life in Portugal and hasn’t stopped scoring.

The Dutch international managed 25 goals in all competitions in his first term at the club and has scored a dozen thus far this term.

Chris Hughton may well feel his side needs further attacking options as the Carrow Road side have managed just 27 goals this season, only QPR have scored fewer.

That Norwich City can afford to invest £10m in such a purchase is perhaps a sign of just how keen the East Anglia side are to retain their spot in the Premier League.
