Cannaries could have a potentially lethal forward line next season.

Norwich City are set to reignite their long-running interest in unwanted Juventus front man Fabio Quagliarella, according to reports in the Daily Mirror.

The Cannaries have so far been busy in the summer transfer window, with head coach Chris Hughton having already added five new players to his first-team squad ahead of the new Premier League season, including striking duo Ricky van Wolfswinkel and Gary Hooper.

The East Anglian side struggled badly in front of goal in the previous campaign, which was one of the main reasons that Hughton’s side were nearly relegated from the Premier League.

And the Norwich boss now wants to bring Juve’s experienced Italy international to Carrow Road before the transfer window closes for business on Sept 2 so that he can have three expert finishers at his disposal in the new campaign.

Quagliarella has been in Turin for the past three seasons now, having originally arrived at the Serie A champions from Napoli in August 2010 on an initial loan move, with Juve then having the chance to buy the forward permanently for 10.5m euros.

However, it appears as though the Bianconeri have since declined to take that option up, meaning  the 30-year-old is now free to find himself a new club after having netted 26 goals in 79 appearances for the Italians, with Norwich potentially his surprise next location.
