Juan Quintero reportedly considering Norwich City move

Published 1 Comments

Premier League newcomers Norwich are set to continue their summer spending with an ambitious attempt to capture Juan Quintero.

The young Columbian was an target for Arsenal last season after a strong showing in the summer's World Cup but struggled for game time at Porto last season.

Reports in Italy now suggest that Norwich will go head to head with Chievo Verona in a battle to sign the 22-year-old attacker.

These reports claim that a two-year deal is on the cards from Norwich and that Quintero is considering his options ahead of the new season.

International Recognition

Although struggling to start for Porto he has often shone on the international stage, scoring against Ivory Coast in the 2014 World Cup a particular highlight.

Quintero is known for his quick feet and slick dribbling, his ability to glide through a mass of defenders could see him become a fan favourite at Carrow Road. He does however posses a tendency to over complicate, simplicity is not something the Columbian knows.

A Calculated Risk?

The fast paced nature of the Premier League may mean he needs some bedding in and with Norwich needing to hit the ground running it could be seen as a risk.

With an impressive seven goals in a minority of starts last season he has potential in abundance and it could be a calculated risk by Alex Neil.

Some South American spice could be exactly what Norwich’s hard grafting side need, especially with the once electrifying Wes Hoolahan turning 34 next year.

He would presumably sit behind a natural finisher like Cameron Jerome and play provider, with a hard working midfield of Bradley Johnson, Jonny Howson and Youssouf Mulumbu shielding his defensive deficiencies.
