Championship trio Norwich, Queens Park Rangers and Bristol City are tracking Slovenia defender Bojan Jokic, sources have told TEAMtalk.com.
Villarreal defender Jokic impressed for Slovenia in their goalless draw with England earlier this month despite playing the majority of the match with a broken toe.
The 30-year-old is well down the pecking order at Villarreal and he has not featured for the Spanish club so far this season, but despite his lack of club action Jokic has featured in Slovenia’s three World Cup qualifiers so far.
Jokic enjoyed a loan spell at Nottingham Forest last season, making 21 appearances for the club after joining the Championship side last January.
The talented full-back is out of contract at Villarreal and a number of clubs across Europe are understood to be keeping tabs on his situation.
Norwich, QPR and Bristol City are all admirers of Jokic and could move for the defender in January as they look to bolster their defensive options in the New Year.
