Transfer rumours are beginning already with reports that City are looking at a Belgian midfielder…
TalkSport are carrying a story today that Norwich City are looking at an ‘audacious’ bid for Porto midfielder, Steven Defour.
Defour is 25 years old and a regular member of the Belgian national squad, having made 37 appearances.
He signed for Porto for around ?6m in August 2011 and has been a big success. He is now supposedly valued at around ?9m so wouldn’t come cheap.
At least CH has the same ideas as we, the fans, do if he’s looking at this type of player. CH has talked before about getting more for your money in Europe and from what I’ve read, the Portuguese League isn’t awash with money.
The lad doesn’t have a terrific goal scoring rate though with only three goals for Porto.
I expect that we’ll be linked with everyone & anyone but this lad does sound quite classy.
