Emiliano Marcondes is not being pursued by Norwich City at this stage of the summer transfer window, despite reports linking him with a potential move on Wednesday. 

The attacking midfielder is set to be released by Bournemouth following a loan move at Scottish side Hibernian and is being pursued by a host of Championship sides this summer. 

Football Insider claimed that included City, but it’s understood the Dane is not under serious consideration by the Canaries at this stage. The report adds that several Scandinavian clubs also monitoring his situation ahead of his exit from Bournemouth later this month. 

Marcondes worked under Thorup at Nordsjaelland in 2023, netting four times in 11 matches during the loan spell back to his home country. He came through the youth academy at the Danish club before leaving to join Brentford in 2018 under ex-Norwich boss Dean Smith.

He has fallen out of favour at Bournemouth, last making a league appearance for the club in August 2022 against Liverpool in the Premier League. Marcondes has made 27 appearances for the Cherries, scoring on seven occasions. 

Norwich are working on a deal to sign 23-year-old Panama international José Cordoba, with their being hope of that being officially completed later this week. 

The defender said on Tuesday that he hoped a resolution over his future would be public knowledge in due course, adding that he is excited about his new project. 

City are expected to target free transfers and loans once the deal for Cordoba is completed, and they do hold an interest in out-of-contract Nordsjaelland left-back Martin Frese, who does have other options in Europe. 

Thorup was asked about links to the 26-year-old defender in the Danish media and hoped Frese would elect to join him in Norfolk, but revealed he hadn't held talks with his former player. 

“Frese is talented, but when I heard that he could be interesting for Norwich, I hurried to stay out of it,” Thorup told Bold.

“I really don't want to be in a situation where it could be reported that I have gone and influenced him while a season has been going on. I have not had any conversations with Frese about this. 

“He is a skilled full-back and a skilled player, so I will be happy if he chooses Norwich, but I will also be happy on his behalf if he chooses something else, because to that extent he has deserved it.”
