Ricky van Wolfswinkel: Among those Norwich are looking at

The Canaries have made no secret of their desire to bring another frontman into Carrow Road, with Hughton having been left frustrated in his efforts so far.

He has revealed that Queens Park Rangers forward Jamie Mackie is in his thoughts, while Celtic's Gary Hooper remains a top target.

Van Wolfswinkel is another name to have been thrown into the mix, with the Dutchman having been linked with a move to England for some time.

He first burst onto the scene at Utrecht and has gone on to prove himself in the Portuguese top-flight.

Hughton has refused to speculate on the likelihood of the 24-year-old making his way to Norwich, but admits there is an interest there.

He said: "Yes, I have seen those reports on him and there is an interest from ourselves but how far that interest has gone from us I don't know. But certainly there is an interest."

o be fair, one of the reasons its so difficult for certain clubs to get close to Real Madrid or Barcelona is once they have a player who is good enough to compete against the likes of Real Madrid or Barcelona, they f*ck off, usually to either Real Madrid or Barcelona.

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.
