Alex Pritchard is being chased by former employers Norwich and Brentford, TEAMtalk understands.

The attacking midfielder is currently with Huddersfield, but has never really been able to shine in West Yorkshire.

But both Norwich and Brentford are both well aware what the 27-year-old is capable of.

Huddersfield’s new boss Carlos Corberan is keen to keep hold of him, but knows the club could not resist a good offer for the player.

Pritchard himself is likely to jump at the chance to return to either club, given both are amongst the favourites for promotion.

The player is likely to command a fee of around £6million.

 

Benrahma linked with Palace

Crystal Palace, meanwhile, are emerging as the new favourites to sign Bees winger Said Benrahma.

The Algerian winger has been linked with Aston Villa and Leeds, though both appear to have turned their focus elsewhere.

West Ham were also strongly linked with a move as they look to reinvest the money they receive for Grady Diangana.

However, The Guardian claims Palace now lead the way for the talented winger.

They claim the Eagles’ sale of striker Alexander Sorloth to RB Leipzig will grant them the funds needed to prise Benrahma the short distance across London.

Norway striker Sorloth has shone since moving to Trabzonspor and a complicated deal will see both sides receive £10m apiece.
