Two strikers linked with Norwich City recently look to be on the move this month, with the future of Canaries forward Dennis Srbeny yet to be settled.

Renaud Emond, 28, was linked with Norwich, Leeds and Nottingham Forest by The Sun last month and it seems he will be leaving Standard Liege during the transfer window, but to go to France.

Belgian newspaper Het Belang van Limburg report that a move worth an initial £2.5million to Nantes is imminent after seven goals in 20 games this season.

Another striker linked with City is Charlton's Lyle Taylor, with London News Online now reporting that the Addicks will sell the 29-year-old after he turned down a new contract.

The former AFC Wimbledon and Falkirk hot shot turns 30 in March but that didn't prevent TeamTalk from linking him with Norwich, Burnley and Sheffield United last month, as well as Championship clubs, Brentford and Forest.

With Taylor turning down a contract offer Athletic would have to sell him this month to get a fee, ahead of his deal expiring in the summer, making him available at a cut-price fee.

He has seven goals and one assist to his name from 13 matches so far this season, having missed three months of the season with a knee injury picked up while on international duty for Montserat, returning to action in December.

Meanwhile, German national newspaper Bild have claimed that Dennis Srbeny's seemingly imminent Canaries exit will cost Paderborn a six-figure fee.

However, they report that the deal may not be sealed until after this Saturday's game at Manchester United, when youngster Adam Idah could well be involved again, depending on the fitness of star striker Teemu Pukki.

With Switzerland international Josip Drmic due to return from two months out with a hamstring injury and Idah scoring an FA Cup hat-trick last weekend, it's unclear whether City will look to bring in a replacement if they do go ahead with Srbeny's sale.
