Norwich City are closing in on the signing of Luxembourg international forward, Danel Sinani, according to Sky Sports.
⚡ PREMIER LEAGUE WRAP ⚡

Having told us just the other day that further signings were unlikely but that “we are always alive to such situations”, Daniel Farke appeared to rule out any further additions to the squad in this transfer window.
The Canaries have already brought in Ondrej Duda (loan) and Lukas Rupp (permanent) this month and both new signings played against Spurs.
Duda has so far played all of both the games since his arrival and it was his goal bound shot against Bournemouth that won a penalty after Steve Cook’s inexplicable hand ball. He also provided the through ball for Max Aarons at Spurs that saw him brought down for the equalising penalty.
The City squad is already at it’s maximum of 17 non-homegrown players though, so should this lad sign then another player already here would have to drop out of the 25-man-squad, meaning that the player missing out could not play in the Premier League again, suggesting a potential loan move for someone.
Sinani is 22-years-old and originally Serbian born. He moved with his family to Luxembourg aged five and he has represented his adopted country 21 times, scoring 3 goals since making his debut in 2017.
Sinani is the top scorer in the Luxembourg league this season with 21 goals in 26 appearances, providing six assists to boot. He has made 59 appearances for his club, F91 Deudelange and he has scored 27 times since 2017 – clearly this is a breakout season for him.
He seems to be a winger and can play on either flank, scoring two of this season’s goals in the Europa League against Sevilla last November.
No word on a transfer fee and as you can imagine, Sky Sports didn’t exactly dwell on his name for too long.
