Norwich linked with surprise Maxi Lopez bid

Football Transfer Centre

Norwich are amongst the teams chasing the signing of Maxi Lopez, who currently plays for Serie A side Catania. The 29-year-old forward has also attracted the interest of Sunderland in recent weeks.

Despite the Canaries having already signed Ricky van Wolfswinkel, Norwich are still eager to bolster their squad and are particularly interested in a new striker to partner Dutchman van Wolfswinkel.

Lopez seems to fit the bill as Chris Hughton can reportedly sign the former Barcelona forward for a fee of around 4.8 million Euros.

The player is not wanted at Catania and spent last season on loan at Sampdoria.
