Norwich City enter race for Danny Graham

Danny Graham (Swansea)Norwich have joined Sunderland in the race for Swansea striker Danny Graham, according to reports from Sky Sports.

The Canaries have offered £5m for his signature, matching the figure reportedly tabled by Martin O’Neill.

Swans manager Michael Laudrup is believed to have deemed the 27-year-old surplus to requirements, and may be willing to do a deal in order to raise funds for other signings.

This has alerted Norwich, who are keen to strengthen their attacking options after a solid start to the Premier League campaign.

Newcastle, QPR and Reading are also believed to be interested, and could spark a bidding war.

Swansea are thought to have targeted Stoke’s Kenwyne Jones as a replacement, prompting talk that Graham may have to wait for a move.

The Potters will reportedly allow the Trinidad and Tobago international to speak to the South Wales club, although a deal is believed to be some way off.

Graham enjoyed a solid 2011/12 season, scoring regularly under former manager Brendan Rodgers, following his £3.5m arrival from Watford.

However, Laudrup appears to prefer Michu as his centre-forward, with the Spaniard having made an excellent start to life in the Premier League, netting 13 goals.

Graham has returned to the first-team recently, weighing in with a number of important strikes, including the club’s second at Stamford Bridge in the Capital One Cup.
