Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

Norwich City are said to be pondering making an 8 million euros move for experienced Juventus front man Fabio Quagliarella this summer, according to reports the Norwich Evening News.

The Cannaries have already been busy in the close-season transfer window, with head coach Chris Hughton having brought strikers Ricky van Wolfswinkel and Gary Hooper both to Carrow Lane ahead of the new Premier League campaign.

However, there have also been suggestions that the East Anglia club want to add yet more firepower to their forward line, with Juventus’s Italy international Quagliarella a name that has appeared in some quarters of late.

The 30-year-old has been with the Serie A champions for the past three seasons now, having been brought to Turin from Napoli in August 2010, initially on a loan, but with a view to joining the ‘Old Lady of Italian Football’ on a permanent deal worth 10.5m euros.

And in the intervening three-year period, the striker has managed to net 26 goals in his 79 appearances in all competitions for the Italian giants, including 22 strikes in his 67 league outings for Antonio Conte’s men.

However, responding to those rumours in both the Italian and English press, Hughton said: “I’ve heard and seen those reports in the press. But it’s exactly the same as our work with Gary (Hooper) – from our side we worked in the correct way, very much behind the scenes and until there was something official to say we didn’t say it.”
