According to our sources, Norwich City are in pole position to sign Polish international Kamil Glik.
The Cherries are strongly interested in signing Glik and the initial talks have already been held. Despite attracting attention from number of European top sides, including clubs from France, Germany and England, the most probable scenario for the Torino captain is now a move to Norwich. However, earlier today sources in Germany came up with the news VfB Stuttgart are also considering a move for the 27 year-old.
Glik would be a great acquisition for Alex Neill. Norwich are currently 15th in the Premier League with 12 points after 12 games, but they have struggled defensively conceding 23 goals (the same number as Chelsea). The only teams that conceded more are Bournemouth and Sunderland with 25 and 26 respectively. The worst defensive performance came at St. James’ Park when Newcastle scored six against the newly promoted side.
As our sources say, signing Glik is a Norwich top priority for the January transfer window. The Cherries scouts have been watching Glik closely for some time including domestic and international games. They are also expected to be on the stands on Friday as Poland hold Iceland. Neill is said to be impressed with the Pole and the club have already began working on the deal that would bring the defender to the Carrow Road.
Estimated transfer fee hasn’t been reported yet whereas Glik valuation is somewhere €10m. However, the deal seems not that likely as the centre-back may wait for more lucrative move after the season and the next-year EURO Poland recently qualified for.
