15 goals, 15 assists – Norwich signing this terrific 26-year-old would be ideal for Farke’s PL campaign

Norwich City opinion: Should the Canaries sign Kostas Fortounis?

According to a report from the Hull Daily Mail, Norwich City have targeted Olympiakos’ Greek playmaker Kostas Fortounis as a summer acquisition. The 26-year-old will enter into the final year of his contract next season and the Canaries are looking to bring him on a cut-price deal.

Norwich have undoubtedly been the best side in the Championship this season and Daniel Farke’s side are deservedly on top of the league.

The Canaries will make it to the Premier League next season barring an absolute miracle and the club should now focus on strengthening their squad for next season.

Daniel Farke’s side have been heavily reliant on Marco Stiepermann’s creativity in the number 10 position and the German has done a fine job behind Teemu Pukki.

The 28-year-old has 7 goals and 7 assists to his name in the Championship this season but Norwich will have to give him more support next season in the Premier League.

Olympiakos’ Kostas Fortounis would be a brilliant addition to this Norwich squad and the Greek international would be a perfect fit for Daniel Farke’s system. The former Kaiserslautern midfield maestro is now Olympiakos’ captain and he has led his team brilliantly this season.

Fortounis has had a stunning season so far, having scored 15 goals and provided 15 assists in all competitions for Olympiakos. The Greek international has been one of the best players this season in the Greek top-flight and he would undoubtedly bolster the Canaries’ attacking prowess next season.

The Greek international is a typical modern-day number 10 who possesses the brilliant combination of being both a creator and a finisher. Fortounis has a brilliant eye for a pass and is an astute dribbler who can take players on.

The Greek international excels when he has players around him who are capable of one-touch passes. His link-up play with a striker or a fellow winger is exceptional and his runs during that course of play leave the defenders stuck on their feet.

Fortounis is a deadly customer in front of the goal and is capable of scoring from distance. He is also a set-piece specialist and is a huge threat to the opposition with his ability to convert direct free-kicks.
