Norwich City opinion – The Canaries would be wise to sign Conor Masterson
According to a report in the Sun, highly-rated Liverpool centre-back Conor Masterson is in Norwich City’s plans for the summer. The Championship leaders, who are the favourites to play Premier League football next season, want to sign the Ireland U21 international.
The positive aspect is that the defender is available on a free transfer as his Liverpool contract ends at the conclusion of this season.
It is suggested that Norwich manager Daniel Farke is having one eye on improving the quality of the squad as he potentially prepares to build a team worthy of playing good football at the top-flight level and Masterson is in his sights (h/t Sun).
The other update is that the defender ideally wants to leave Liverpool in search of more first-team action (h/t Sun). Here’s why the Canaries would be right to step up and sign the 20-year-old in the summer:
Masterson is a big talent who could help Norwich big time
Despite not playing first-team games for Liverpool, Conor Masterson has been around the circuit in the Merseyside. He was on the bench in a few league and Champions League knockout games last season. Hence, the experience gained from those situations must be invaluable.
Furthermore, the Irishman has been a regular starter in the U23 team, which means he is not only a bench-warmer but is also playing in a youth team that usually does well in its own league.
In terms of attributes, Masterson is a tall and lanky centre-back who dominates the game aerially and is pretty good at passing from the back. His reading of the game is accurate most of the times, making him an all-around prospect for the future.

It is quite clear that he would be a great addition to Norwich City. The only thing that needs to be done rests on the Canaries’ shoulders – to make an offer and sign the youngster on a free transfer.
