Free agent Emiliano Marcondes would play in the Championship – but is staying tight lipped over the prospect of a potential reunion at Norwich City with Johannes Hoff Thorup.

The 29-year-old attacking midfielder will officially leave Bournemouth at the end of the month, and came through the FC Nordsjælland system before a brief loan stint under Thorup in 2023.

Marcondes, who can operate down the middle or on the left of midfield, finished last season on loan at Hibs after a foot problem limited his game time with the Cherries.

City will confirm the signing of Jose Cordoba when the window officially opens later this week, but the potential addition of free agents and loans are also a part of this summer’s transfer strategy.

Marcondes, speaking to Danish-based football magazine Tipsbladet, would not be drawn on recent transfer speculation linking him with the Canaries.

“I don't have any comment on the clubs I am brought into play for, but I would like to say that I am very interested in coming back to a series like the Championship,” he said. “I also still have a dream to play in the Premier League. I don't feel like I've played enough at that level and want more of it. I am hungry to play in a big league and at a high level.

“I look a lot at who the clubs have as a coach and what game system they run with. And whether they have the right values. I have experienced at FC Nordsjælland, and Brentford, I get the most pleasure from being in a place where I have control over that part.

“I am looking for new opportunities and am ready for a new adventure. I am reasonably open to what offers should come in, but it is important for me to hit a club with a clear playing style and culture that I fit into.”

Marcondes has been part of Championship promotion winning squads at Brentford and Bournemouth, although he only made 24 appearances for the Cherries.

He scored three goals in 17 loan outings for Hibs last season, after being sidelined for the first four months of the campaign with a foot injury.

“The most important thing about going to Scotland was that I got to play a lot,” he said. “We didn't do that well as a team, but for my foot and injury it was good to show that I can play along and score and be a supporting figure, so overall we got what I came for.

“I can see from the numbers on the GPS that I am hitting some of the same numbers that I have hit before. The foot has responded very well and I have had no pain at all.”
