Norwich City are reportedly interested in signing Ghanaian international Daniel Opare.

The 28-year-old has just a year left on his contract at Antwerp and City are interested in signing the right back along with Aston Villa according to The Sun.

The experienced right-back, who made 23 appearances last season helping the Belgian side to a Europa League spot, could be available at £500,000.

Opare joined Antwerp from German side Augsburg on a two-year deal in 2018 and has previously had spells at Porto and Real Madrid B.

Opare left Augsburg under a cloud in 2018 when he was told to leave the club for being "dishonest" and having "shown no loyalty to the club's values" amid transfer talks with Schalke.

Verdict

City could certainly do with some cover at right back to Max Aarons given the departures of Ivo Pinto and Felix Passlack. City sporting director Stuart Webber has stated how the club won't be splashing the cash this summer so to be able to bring in an international of Opare's calibre at a knockdown price could be tempting. Whilst Aarons had a stunning debut season, to have someone of the experience of Opare pushing him could be helpful to the Canaries.
