Late last week, we covered an interview Le Quotidien in Luxembourg had with F91 Dudelange manager Bertrand Crasson where the 48-year-old discussed the future of his star player Danel Sinani.
The forward was reportedly a target for Norwich City during the January transfer window, and while no move was completed during that month, there is a very, very strong chance the Canaries will get their man.
How do we know? The player told Le Quotidien himself in an interview.
Asked about the rumours, he replied: “I can confirm that Norwich are very interested in my services, but I haven’t signed with them. Let’s say that talks are well on their way. It’s a club that plays in the Premier League, and even if they aren’t well placed, it remains a very good level. It’s simply the best league in the world”.
With Daniel Farke’s team sitting rock bottom of England’s top-tier, there’s a strong chance the Canaries will get relegated to the Championship come the end of the campaign, but that isn’t something that will put Sinani off a move.
He explained: “I’m not scared of that second division. Have you seen the games they play there? It remains very strong. It’s a competition that’s better than some top division elsewhere in Europe”.
Admitting he’s been keeping a closer look on how Norwich City have been doing since their interest in him, Sinani took the opportunity to make one thing very clear.
He said: “What’s certain is that I won’t be playing in Luxembourg for 2020-21. As I said, things are very advanced with Norwich. They absolutely want me, but we have to see how things can or will be finalised. I haven’t been to visit the infrastructures, but that’s planned. The two parties just need to find the time”.
It seems Sinani is expecting to be playing at Carrow Road next season, and it will be a huge boost for Norwich to know he isn’t worried about the Championship.
The left-winger, whose contract with F91 Dudelange expires at the end of the season, has scored 24 goals in 26 appearances in all competitions this season, also picking up seven assists.
