According to the Daily Mail, EFL Championship leaders Norwich City are keeping tabs on the contract situation of Brentford star Emiliano Marcondes ahead of the January transfer window.

The 25-year-old midfielder started out at the academy of Hvidovre IF in his homeland Denmark before moving to the Nordsjaelland youth setup in 2010.

Having risen through the ranks, Marcondes went on to make 120 appearances, before signing for Brentford in January 2018 on a free transfer.

Pretty much a regular fixture in the side, Marcondes has featured in 16 of Brentford’s 20 Championship matches this term. However, the Dane’s contract is set to expire at the end of the season, sparking speculations over his future.

While talks over a new deal have been held. Marcondes’ situation has attracted interest from current Championship leaders Norwich City.

The Canaries are pushing hard to secure a swift return to the Premier League and may dip their toes into the market to bolster the squad.

However, with talks being held between the midfielder and Brentford, there is still a chance that he might pen a new contract with the Bees. It will be interesting to see how this develops in the coming weeks.
