David Ornstein has claimed that Norwich City are prepared to sell Todd Cantwell ‘if an acceptable offer arrives’.
Cantwell has always been a regular for his club but he has struggled a lot this season.
Speaking on his Transfer Mailbag, the Athletic journalist has told the following.
“Norwich have decided that Cantwell can leave in January if an acceptable offer arrives,” Ornstein said.
“Although his contract is scheduled to expire next summer, the club have an option to extend it to June 2023, which they will trigger if a transfer does not materialise in the coming weeks — and therefore they are seeking a fee in excess of £15 million.
“That may appear steep for a player who has fallen out of favour at Carrow Road but let’s not forget he is still only 23, has accumulated more than 100 senior appearances and was capped by England Under-21s.
“He caught the eye in Norwich’s 2019-20 Premier League campaign, attracting interest from the likes of Liverpool and was seriously considered by Leeds before they chose to sign Raphina.”
The 23-year-old has made just 8 appearances for the Canaries and has not registered a single goal yet.
