Norwich City have made a formal enquiry about Liverpool's young-midfielder Jonjo Shelvey ahead of a possible move for him in the summer once the transfer window opens, reports the .
The Englishman has made several performances for Liverpool this season, mainly in the Europa League, and despite putting in some impressive displays, he has failed to get regular first-team action.
The 21-year-old started just 18 times this season for Liverpool with just nine of those coming in the Premier League.
His main role was coming on as a sub and he did that 15 times in all competitions, scoring five times as well.
Shelvey joined Liverpool back in 2010 from Charlton Athletic and cost the club £1.7million, but if they are to sell the player, they want the bidding to start at £5million.
Norfolk-based club Norwich City, who finished 11th last season despite being in a relegation battle for the majority of the season, have made an official enquiry about the U21-international, but they may be put off by the substantial asking price.
The Canaries have already strengthened their squad ahead of the new season by signing Sporting's striker Ricky Van Wolfswinkel and Jonjo Shelvey could be next on the list, if they are able to match Liverpool's asking price of £5million.
It is reported if the Anfield-based clubare able to sell Shelvey, they will look at Spanish U17-international Pedro Chirivella, who currently plays for Valencia.
However, they will face competition in signing the 16-year-old as Manchester City have also shown interest in the midfielder.
