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 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."

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
