Paul Lambert has told Norwich's board the players he wants to bring in during the January transfer window, but accepts the Norfolk club will have to "box clever" to land his top targets.
The Canaries have acquitted themselves well on their return to the top flight, and were the highest-placed of all three promoted clubs going into for Tuesday's visit of high-flying Tottenham.
Norwich, however, have yet to keep a clean sheet in any of their 17 Barclays Premier League games, and it is understood defensive reinforcements are on Lambert's wanted list. "I have told the club the players I would like to try and get in," Lambert told BBC Radio Norfolk.
