Norwich City are looking to bolster their attacking options before the start of the season and are pondering moves for Italian striker Fabio Quagliarella and Sampdoria hitman Maxi Lopez, according to the Metro.

The news comes as manager Chris Hughton accepted that the Canaries do not have enough of a threat in front of goal last season and focused his efforts into reconstructing their attack.

Striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel has already been bought to Carrow Road from Sporting Lisbon and now it’s the names of Quagliarella and Maxi Lopez that are frequently surfacing in the press.

When asked, Hughton responded by saying: “Yes, I have seen the reports that I was in Italy.

"There are players that we would have an interest in bringing to the club but wanting to bring someone here and actually getting them here is two different things.

"The areas that we felt we needed to improve were the offensive areas. We brought Ricky in but on the other side of it Simeon [Jackson] and Holty [Grant Holt] have departed so, yes, the forward area is one we are looking to do something."

If Norwich were to sign either of the targets mentioned it would undoubtedly boost their chances of success this season.

Quagliarella played regularly for Serie A champions Juventus last year and scored goals both in the league and Champions League. Argentinian Maxi Lopez also has strong pedigree, having had spells at Barcelona and AC Milan.
