Norwich City are interested in Nuremburg midfielder Hanno Behrens according to reports in Germany.
The Canaries are ready to plunder the German market once again this summer according to newspaper, Bild, after bringing in Mario Vrancic, Christophe Zimmermann and Marcel Franke already this summer.
Behrens, 27, is a defensive midfielder who has spent the majority of his career in Bundesliga II with Nuremburg and previously Darmstadt.
Behrens is apparently aware of City’s interest in him. “Anyone who knows me knows that I’m open-minded,” he said. “My agent told me about the interest from England but my first port of call remains with FC Nuremburg.”
City, who have already made seven signings this summer, could be ready to re-enter the transfer market with their coffers swelled by Jacob Murphy’s imminent £12.5m move to Newcastle United.
United agreed a fee with the Canaries on Monday and the player flew from City’s German training base to discuss personal terms with the Premier League outfit last night.
