Ross McCormack: Fulham striker wanted by Norwich and Villa

Norwich City are leading the race to sign Fulham striker Ross McCormack, sources have told TEAMtalk.

Norwich boss Alex Neil is keen to bring in a proven goalscorer as he looks to build a side capable of winning promotion back to the Premier League and he sees McCormack as the man to spearhead that challenge.

McCormack scored 23 goals last season for Fulham in all competitions and his future at Craven Cottage has been the subject of speculation with a number of clubs credited with an interest in his services.

The likes of Newcastle and Aston Villa have been linked with McCormack, but TEAMtalk has learnt that Norwich are heading the hunt to land the Scotland international.

Fulham are reluctant to lose McCormack having handed him a new contract earlier this year to keep him at Craven Cottage until 2020 and they will be looking to recoup more than the £11million they paid Leeds to sign the striker in 2014.

Despite the price-tag on his head Norwich are refusing to give up on their pursuit of McCormack with Neil a big admirder of the player and he is desperate to add to his squad having only signed Northern Ireland goalkeeper Michael McGovern and former Liverpool youngster Sergi Canos so far this summer.
