Premier League side Norwich City are closing in on an impressive double signing of Ajax centre-back Toby Alderweireld and Juventus striker Fabio Quagliarella as Chris Hughton's summer spending looks to increase.

The Canaries have already bolstered their squad by signing several big names, including Javier Garrido, Martin Olsson, Nathan Redmond and Ricky Van Wolfswinkel and they are now close to securing two experienced Champions League players.

Ajax defender Alderweireld, has only 12 months left on his current contract at the Dutch club and could be close to moving to Carrow Road in a deal worth £6.9million.

However, speaking about his future, the Belgium defender admitted that no decision has been formally made as of yet.

"I am still at Ajax and I am happy here, maybe I will stay for a year," he told Dutch television station AT5.

"With every bid that comes, I see if it is good for me. Whether I will stay or not is something we'll have to see about.

"I'm not saying 'no' in advance to Norwich, but I am certainly not saying 'yes' immediately.

"Maybe I will stay a year, which could be for the best. The overall picture has to be right for me. Maybe that will be Norwich City or any other club."

City, who finished 11th in the Premier League last season despite fighting relegation for the majority of the campaign, have recently lost three strikers with Grant Holt, James Vaughan and Simeon Jackson all leaving the club.

Hughton will be looking at signing a couple of strikers to fill the voids left by the aforementioned players and his attention has turned to Juve striker Fabio Quagliarella, as the Italian side look set to sell the 30-year-old after capturing both Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente.

It hasn't been suggested how much Norwich are willing to pay for the striker, but it has been reported that a deal could be completed in the next week or so.
