Norwich City are interested in signing Schalke goalkeeper Ralf Fahrmann according to reports.

Sky Sports Germany are reporting that the Canaries are keen to bring the 30-year-old shot-stopper to Carrow Road this summer.

Reporter Dirk Schlarmann said that City have made their interest known but it is unclear whether Fahrmann is open to their offer.

Fahrmann made 16 starts for Schalke last season, spending the second half of the season on the sidelines thanks to injury and Alexander Nubel being preferred.

Former Huddersfield manager David Wagner was appointed Schalke's new manager this summer and he is yet to decide who will be his first choice next season.
