Cantwell, 22, has spent his entire career with Norwich after joining their youth academy in 2008 and has since gone onto force his way into the club’s senior first-team.

The young midfielder’s first-team contributions helped Norwich reach the Premier League during the 2019-20 season and despite going straight back down, alongside team-mate Emi Buendia, Cantwell was arguably the Canaries’ stand-out performer.

Cantwell’s debuting top-flight season saw him be directly involved in eight goals in 37 appearances in a campaign which suggested the Englishman was capable of playing at the highest level on a regular basis.

According to a recent report from Football Insider (via Leeds Live), the Norwich midfielder has emerged as a late summer target for Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United.

The report states that Bielsa who is an admirer of the 22-year-old is preparing to launch a bid in an attempt to secure his services in time for the transfer window’s deadline at the beginning of next month.
