Norwegian striker Ohi Omoijuanfo is a target for Norwich City and is available for around £2million.

That is according to The Sun, who claim the Canaries are competing with Championship rivals Sheffield Wednesday and Queens Park Rangers for the man who is currently the top scorer in the Norwegian top flight.

The 23-year-old has scored 12 goals in 17 league games for mid-table side Stabaek and recently earned his first international cap.

Omoijuanfo has represented under-17, U19 and U21 levels and recently made his debut at senior level in a 1-1 friendly draw with Sweden in June, having been an unused substitute for a World Cup qualifier three days earlier, a 1-1 draw with the Czech Republic.

As the forward’s father is Nigerian, he can still represent the African nation until he plays in a competitive match for Norway.

He came through the youth system at Lillestrom and played 91 games, scoring 10 goals, before starting 2015 with Finnish side Kuopion Palloseura and then scoring 17 goals in 33 games for Norwegian second tier club FK Jerv.

That earned him the move to Stabaek and he scored six goals in 34 games in 2016, although often featured as a substitute.
