by Oilroyal » 07 Jul 2017 20:46

Norwich City have accepted a bid from Reading for striker Nelson Oliveira, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

If true would be a great signing. Ex Benfica striker, had a good season on loan at Nottingham Forest, before signing for Norwich last year. Age 25 scored 15 goals last season in all competitions. Fee has not been quoted.

Norwich signed him for £5m last season. He had a good season for them so surely the fee will be £7m+. Can't see it myself but really hope it's true.

A complete forward who seems to have adjusted well to the Champ over the past couple of seasons. In for this!

I'd be happy with this. Hope we dont have to pay silly money and I'm sure he wont come cheap on wages

Tore us an absolute new one last year. Very good striker who would be perfect for our system. Would also be a huge statement of intent.

If both the Oliveira and Darlow rumours are true then the new owners are willing to back Stam all the way but we'll just have to wait and see. Both good targets if true

Denial from Norwich that bid has been accepted. Thread over.

Lol...you maybe right....but when has anything been true and definitive in football?

Denials, being the first untruth

Denial is from the Norwich version of Charles Watts, called Michael Bailey. Similarly reliable.

He'd cost the best part of £10m if Norwich aren't completely stupid, I can't see us spending that much on one player this summer.

I agree pre our new club owner era but none of us know the new spending power of the new owners yet. As I've said on here the next 2 first team signings will give an indication of where we're at in terms of the quality of our targets and spending power.
