According to a report from The Eastern Daily Press, Norwich City have joined the race sign Eibar’s Sergi Enrich in the summer. The 29-year-old’s contract will expire at the end of the season and Watford, Levante, Leganes and Real Sociedad have all been linked with a move for him in the summer.

Norwich clinched the Championship title on the last day of the season, thanks to a 2-1 victory against Aston Villa. The Canaries will now head to the Premier League next season, where they will need to strengthen their squad to have any chance of surviving.

His quickness on the turn when his back is facing the goal is a brilliant and his ability to retain possession even when under pressure will be a massive asset in the Premier League, especially for a newly promoted side.
