Norwich signing this 23-year-old Benfica star on loan could be the cleverest piece of business this summer – agreed?

Norwich City opinion: Canaries in for Filip Krovinovic – Good move?

According to a report in Pink Un, Premier League new boys Norwich City are in advanced talks to sign Filip Krovinovic on a season-long loan deal from Benfica.

The 23-year-old, who is back on the comeback trail after suffering a lot last season due to a long-term knee injury, needs game time and Benfica want him to play in the Premier League to increase his transfer value in due course of time. (h/t Pink Un)

Norwich have already signed Patrick Roberts from Manchester City on loan, but manager Daniel Farke is keen on making more additions (h/t Pink Un). Here’s why Krovinovic could be a decent addition to the Canaries’ squad:

Krovinovic can add creativity to the Canaries’ team

Filip Krovinovic is a versatile attacking midfield player, who can play as a number 10 behind the striker, can partner him in a front-two system and is also capable of operating in central midfield if required.

In terms of his attributes, the Croat is good at dribbling past people to create space in the final third, can pick out key passes and doesn’t mind finishing off the chances if they come his way, is physically strong on and off the ball and possesses good pace to stretch the opposition defence.

So, overall, it can be said that if Norwich City manage to sign him, it would be a good addition to their squad. The 23-year-old suffered a lot last season due to an injury, but his quality is still there to make the telling difference.

Krovinovic’s ability to create chances and work the space in between the lines could be helpful to the Canaries as they embark on a potentially-challenging season in the Premier League.
