Gabriel Sara is concentrating on the job at hand at Norwich City amid a flurry of transfer speculation linking him with West Ham and Atletico Madrid. 

It's been a week of rumour for the Brazilian midfielder, who has been linked with a host of clubs across Europe after an uplift in his Norwich performances in recent months.


The 23-year-old netted his third goal in four matches as the Canaries recorded a disappointing 1-1 draw with Huddersfield Town on Wednesday night. 

Only Teemu Pukki and Josh Sargent have netted more goals for City in the Championship this season - with Sara timing his run to perfection to latch onto Adam Idah's cross for the opener.

His impressive performances have raised eyebrows elsewhere, according to a national newspaper report over the weekend. 

Despite the speculation, Sara is determined to keep his focus on Norwich's push for the Championship play-offs. 

"I want to live in the present," Sara said. "I don't know anything about these reports, actually. 

"I am only thinking about Norwich and getting this promotion. That is my focus. 

"I am feeling so confident and like I'm adapting to this league. Every game I am feeling better. I'm learning to fight to the ball, how to deal with the press and tactically. The quality on the pitch is making me better and my team are making me a better player."

Norwich's draw in Yorkshire served as another dent in their play-off chase, and they now find themselves four points behind six-placed Millwall with nine matches remaining. 

They travel to Stoke on Saturday carrying a depleted squad with injuries and searching for a victory to close the gap heading into the international break.

Reflecting on a frustrating night at the John Smith's Stadium, Sara felt it was an opportunity wasted for his side. 

"We are upset and disappointed with this result. We could have done better," he said.

"Our first half was good and we could have scored more to finish the game, but we didn't. We have to analyse it and do better in the next game.

"We have two days to recover and prepare for Stoke so we need to deal with this and be ready for the next game."
