Norwich City Opinion: Why the Canaries should sign Andre Dozzell
According to a report from East Anglian Daily Times, newly-promoted Norwich City are interested in Ipswich Town midfielder Andre Dozzell.
Andre Dozzell, 20, came through the youth ranks at Portman Road and made his first-team debut at 16. He has since struggled a little with injury, missing the 2017/18 campaign with an ACL injury, but he has bounced back this past season to also attract interest from Brighton, adds the report.
The 20-year-old’s contract expires next summer although Ipswich have a one-year extension clause. Regardless, Ipswich Town want to tie him down to a longer deal.
Following relegation to the League One, the Tractor Boys manager Paul Lambert would like to keep hold of the core of the squad to bounce back at the first time of asking.
Dozzell is one of the most important players and the club would try their best to retain his services but interest from Premier League clubs could be too tempting to turn down.
With that in mind, Norwich should beat Brighton to the 20-year-old midfielder’s signing this summer.
The Canaries boss Daniel Farke has shown a lot of trust on youngsters and promoted them during the Championship-winning campaign of last season.
The likes of Ben Godfrey, Jamal Lewis, Todd Cantwell and Max Aarons played significant roles in the club’s return to the Premier League. Of course, recruitment has also been instrumental and Farke and co. will be expected to continue working in the same vein.
Norwich have added some firepower over the summer to boost the attacking department, which was excellently spearheaded by Teemu Pukki in the Championship. However, it’s high time for Farke to add strength to the midfield depth and he could do a good job by bringing in Andre Dozzell.

Dozzell may not be a regular starter for the Canaries in the Premier League but he could be eased into the team. The 20-year-old could be the long-term replacement for Alexander Tettey, who will turn 34 midway through the next season.
He’s clearly got something about him if Norwich are interested in signing him and the fact that it could be for a bargain deal makes it even better for the Premier League newbies.
Thus, Norwich should quickly snap up Dozzell from Ipswich Town before other clubs start circling.
