Norwich City are set to complete the signing of FC Twente star Leroy Fer, reports De Telegraaf.
The highly-rated midfielder was expected to join Everton in January, but unexplained circumstances prevented the deal being completed.
Norwich City manager Chris Hughton has decided to go back in for Fer and he now looks set to capture the Dutch international for a reported fee of £4.3million.
Fer impressed last season for FC Twente, proving his credentials of being a box-to-box midfielder by netting 11 times in just 21 starts.
It is this goal-scoring ability, coupled with his tenacious break up of play which has seen the 23-year-old likened to Ivorian star Yaya Touré.
The former Feyenoord youngster also featured for Holland Under-21s in this summer’s European championships, playing a vital role in helping his country reach the semi-final stage.
He scored two goals which included a last minute winner against Germany having come off the substitutes’ bench.
Fer would be another ambitious summer move for Norwich City, who have already confirmed the signatures of Ricky van Wolfswinkel, Nathan Redmond, Martin Olsson and Carlo Nash.
Juventus and Italy striker Fabio Quagliarella is rumoured to be of interest to the Canaries, according to the Daily Mirror.
Meanwhile, reports suggest that Belgian defender Toby Alderweireld has rejected a move to the East Anglian club after Ajax and Norwich had agreed a fee.
