Norwich City look set to sign Swedish striker Ola Toivonen from PSV Eindhoven, Sky Sports reports.

The two clubs have finally agreed a fee according to the Dutch club and Norwich can now begin discussing personal terms with the striker.

Norwich have long been interested in signing the Swedish international but were thought to have been put off because they believed that PSV’s £4 million asking price was too high for a player in the final year of his contract.

However, PSV’s director Marcel Brands claims that the two clubs have agreed a fee and that the matter is now in the hands of the strikers agents.

“We never comment on any sums, but we have reached an agreement with Norwich for Ola,” Brands told Swedish newspaper SportBladet.

“Now it’s entirely up to him to decide whether he wants to move.

“We start training on Monday, if there is no deal with Norwich then I expect to him to be here.”

Norwich manager Chris Hughton has been looking to strengthen the Canaries front-line this summer and will hope to link Toivonen with another new striker, Ricky Van Wolfswinkel who signed earlier in the summer.

The signing of Toivonen could spell the end of Grant Holt’s career at Norwich, with the striker said to worried that he won’t get in the Canaries first team next season.

Crystal Palace are rumoured to be ready to bid £2 million for Holt.
