Norwich set to battle West Ham for Reds starlet

Liverpool midfielder Jonjo Shelvey

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is pondering the future of midfielder Jonjo Shelvey as Norwich City became the first team to make an enquiry, according to the Daily Mail.

Shelvey is with the England under-21’s in Isreal at present and is to be allowed an extended holiday once he returns.

The 21-year-old has been a bit part player for Rodgers this season although his passion and creativity have shone when he got his chance.

Norwich are looking to spend big this summer in order to continue their stability in the top flight and having already tied down Ricky Van Wolfswinkel they have moved on to Shelvey.

West Ham have also been linked with a move for the former Charlton lad who may need to leave Merseyside in order to further his career and gain regular first team football.

Liverpool are expected to want more than the £5million Norwich are offering and so a bidding war and negotiations are set to unfold.
