Norwich City are continuing to be linked with all sorts of supposed transfer targets as the Championship season winds down and promotion to the Premier League looks highly likely.

The Canaries only need a point from their last two games to get the maths right and seal the deal.

Assuming that City will be playing Premier League football next season, you can also assume that moves are well underway behind the scenes to sign new players to help with that tough looking proposition.

The latest to be named is Bayern Munich II Striker, Kwasi Okyere Wriedt with the link being reported by .

This lad is 24 and has a very good record while playing in the Regionalliga, a division of German football that Daniel Farke knows well, having managed Borussia Dortmund II there.

Wriedt has scored 22 goals and provided 7 assists in 30 appearances this season which has prompted three appearances for Munich’s first team under Niko Kovac.

He has reportedly already turned down moves to Genk and RB Salzburg to stay with Bayern but playing for Bayern Munich’s reserves is a bit like playing in the same position for Manchester United or City or really, any of the big clubs throughout Europe.

You will always find a pathway to the first team hard to negotiate at any of those clubs because there will always be numerous multi-million-pound signings ahead of you, most of whom are already established stars.

It takes a brave coach to put their faith in such a youngster when the pressure to play an established superstar is there from both the board and the stands.

No such issues at Norwich with that though because if you’re good enough, you’ll play and age doesn’t come into it for Farke, who is quite prepared to play young players if they can step up and make the grade, as we have seen.

Wriedt apparently also has interest from Hertha Berlin, who play in the Bundesliga and with the route to the first team seemingly blocked at Bayern, a move could well be on the cards.

Will the lure of the Premier League be the key to Wriedt leaving Bayern? I must say that this sort of link is much more viable for us rather than the likes of Ryan Babel, which came out earlier in the week that I thought so fanciful, I didn’t even bother to report it.
