Norwich City are being linked with the enfant terrible of Turkish football Emre Mor.

The Sun claim the Canaries are interested in the Celta Vigo winger along with fellow promoted sides Aston Villa and Sheffield United.

The Spanish side are reportedly considering letting Mor leave for free this summer despite still having three years to run on his contract due to his indiscipline.

Mor, who was born and raised in Copenhagen but plays for Turkey thanks to his Turkish father, was once seen as a star of the future when Borussia Dortmund paid around £9m FC Nordsjælland in the summer of 2016 but a fall-out with then boss Thomas Tuchel prompted an £11.7m move to Celta Viga the following year.

However, the Spanish side have also grown tired of his attitude and are willing to let the winger leave this summer.

Verdict

This feels like an agent desperately trying to get his player a Premier League move to salvage his client's career.

City head coach Daniel Farke has gained a reputation for getting talented players' careers back on track thanks mainly to his work with Moritz Leitner and Tom Trybull. However, the German insists on his players showing the right attitude and won't tolerate anyone disrupting the team spirt that took Norwich to promotion.

Marcus Edwards arrived from Tottenham on loan towards the end of Farke's first season in charge at Carrow Road and barely featured thanks to reported problems with the player's attitude.

Once bitten, twice shy? Possibly not as City's scouting team will judge every player on their individual merits. However, it's difficult to see Farke risking the camaraderie established last season no matter how talented Mor is. Given his track record of indiscipline for the last three years don't expect Mor to be the latest arrival at City.
