Norwich City are reportedly interested in signing Holstein Kiel goalkeeper Dominik Reimann.
The 21-year-old played under Daniel Farke when he was a Borussia Dortmund B and The Sun claim City's head coach is keen for a reunion.
Reimann made just 11 starts for Holstein Kiel in Bundesliga 2 last season having played second fiddle to Kenneth Kronholm for much of the campaign.
Kronholm has just signed for Chicago Fire but Kiel could be set to lose another goalkeeper if City firm up their interest in Reimann.
Sun columnist Alan Nixon also claims Blackburn could be interested in re-signing Grant Hanley, potentially on loan.
City's skipper spent the majority of last season on the bench at Carrow Road as Ben Godfrey and Christoph Zimmermann took centre stage.
Reimann sounds one that is very possible. However, it is unlikely that Daniel Farke sees Reimann challenging Tim Krul for the number one spot in the Premier League next season. Krul has just signed a new deal with Norwich whilst Michael McGovern also signed a new contract towards the end of last season. Aston Oxborough could be loaned out to a Football League club this summer and that could leave an opening for Reimann to fill in the Under 23s.
Hanley signed a new contract at City in November that runs until the summer of 2023. However, the landscape has significantly changed since thanks in large part to the emergence of Godfrey. City will want at least four senior centre halves at their disposal next season so you would expect City to sign a new defender if they were to sanction Hanley's exit.
