Norwich have seen one approach for the free-scoring Scot knocked back this summer, with the acquisition of added firepower a top priority at Carrow Road.

McCormack is a proven marksman at Championship level and Norwich will be back in the second tier next season after suffering relegation out of the Premier League.

Parachute payments would help to fund a move for the likes of McCormack, with the battle to secure his signature set to intensify.

Fulham, another of those to have dropped out of the top flight last season, are also believed to be in the hunt, along with Derby County.

Adams is, however, adamant that his interest has not stretched to the tabling of an eight-figure offer.

He said in the Pink Un: "There is nothing in that. We have made no offer for McCormack.

"I've read about plenty of others as well. What we are doing is looking everywhere, of course, and with agents and players people make assumptions.

"There was another dozen names that I have been linked with and we have supposedly made offers for. That is plainly untrue.

"As and when we do, we will let the supporters and the media know. There is no pulling the wool over the eyes here.

"We have not made a bid for McCormack or for any other players."

Norwich have also been strongly linked with Watford forward Troy Deeney, another of those to have been a regular source of goals in the second tier over recent years.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
