It’s not everyday we write about a Luxembourg international potentially joining a Premier League club, but after the transfer rumours sending Danel Sinani to Norwich City back in January, it’s a real possibility.
The 22-year-old has been in great form for F91 Dudelange this season, scoring 21 goals and assisting another six in 26 games, including four in five Europa League group games.
It wasn’t enough to get his team through to the next round of the competition, but his performances caught the eye of Norwich, and with a contract expiring at the end of the campaign, he’s a very attractive prospect for many sides.
Sinani has remained rather coy on the subject, but his current manager, Bertrand Crasson, commented on the situation on Friday, speaking to Le Quotidien in Luxembourg.
He said: “It’s normal that clubs are interested in him with a contract ending at the end of the season, but for now, he’s still with us. Knowing Danel a bit, he’s not the kind to be destabilised by that. I’ve actually had confirmation of his implication by talking with him, even if it’s only human to think of your future in such circumstances.
“Let’s be honest, he’s wasting his time this year in the BGL Ligue, so, next year, he’ll need to find himself a club capable of helping him take that next step. For now, however, it won’t make our opponents happy to see he’s still well and truly here”.
There’s no direct mention of Norwich by Crasson there, but the newspaper did specifically ask about the interest from Daniel Farke’s side to set up the answer.
It remains to be seen if the Premier League club win the race for the forward, and whether or not their precarious position in the table will impact them in any future negotiations.
Norwich currently sit rock bottom with 18 points from 26 games, seven points from 17th placed Aston Villa.
