Norwich favourites to sign Swedish star
Norwich have emerged as the early favourites to sign Swedish star Jiloan Hamad
Norwich, West Ham and Fulham are all believed to be chasing the signature of Malmo FF's Sewdish midfielder, Jiloan Hamad, reports the Daily Mail.
The 22-year-old is thought to favour a move to Carrow Road, and is keen to test himself in the Premier League.
The Azerbaijan-born Sweden winger will become a free agent in the summer, when his contract expires, and English teams can approach him on a pre-contract agreement from January.
Norwich have scored just three goals in their opening five Premier League games this season, and Canaries boss Chris Hughton will be looking to add some firepower and creativity to his side.
Hamad is considered as one of the brightest young prospects in Scandinavia, and Swedish giants Malmo were desperate to tie their skipper down to a new and improved long-term deal.
They now seem resigned to losing their inspirational captain, who will be looking to follow in the footsteps of fellow Swede Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Ibrahimovic played for Malmo between 1999 and 2001, before moving onto bigger things elsewhere in Europe.
The winger has earned six caps at senior level for Sweden, and scored twice in midweek as Malmo smashed Hibernian 9-0 in the Europa League.
Norwich look set to beat their rivals to his signature, as they are willing to offer him first-team football.
