Norwich City are understood to have made an offer for Paderborn striker, Dennis Srbeny reports the EDP



SC Paderborn are currently top of the league in Dritte Liga, the third tier of German football, and 23 year old Srbeny has so far scored 9 goals in 15 games and also provided 8 assists.

The club`s Sporting Director, Markus Krösche is quoted by Liga3-online as saying: “Yes, we have an offer and the discussions are in progress.”

The report suggests that any offer would have to be high six figures if the Canaries are to get their man.

Paderborn is Daniel Farke`s home town club and assistant Eddie Reimer also played for them, so it stands to reason that they would know all about the player.

City need to get a striker in over the next week and with plenty of speculation about surrounding Norwich and strikers, it seems they will, the question though is who it will be?

Of the three most written about, Le Havre`s Nathael Julan, Middlesbrough`s Ashley Fletcher and now this lad, only Fletcher has experience of English and Championship football – he is also going to be by far the most expensive option.

I must say though, players from Ligue 2 and Dritte Liga are not exactly exciting, at least on paper. Is Tristan Abrahams not at that level? He at least has experience of English football but I don`t see him in training or watch every U23 game. Perhaps he just isn`t up to it.

The Head Coach is there every day and sees him day in, day out and his is really the only opinion that matters. He`s paid to make these decisions.

  • I find myself asking just how many of the players in the English championship can be deemed exciting? Are all 24 teams blessed with the likes of a Pritchard or Maddison? Of Germanys lower league players that are already at the club only one has thus far appeared wanting at our second tier level. 9 goals and 8 assists in just 15 games is truly impressive. Do we have the players and style to utilize such potential is another story.
