Norwich Set To Bid For Brighton Striker

Norwich City manager Chris Hughton is keen on bringing Brighton and Hove Albion forward Craig Mackail-Smith to Carrow Road in January.

The Canaries gaffa failed in an attempt to bring the Scotland striker to Norfolk in the summer but with Norwich missing too many chances in recent games, a natural goalscorer could be the missing ingredient.

Mackail-Smith rejected both Leicester and West Ham in favour of higher wages at Brighton, but it seems that Gus Poyet’s team will struggle to make the play offs again this season prompting their star man to jump ship.

Norwich are relying on the goals of Grant Holt and Steve Morison this season, but they are yet to deliver despite an impressive first half of the season.

The Canaries are a huge eight points clear of the relegation zone and are once again surprising a few of the big boys this season.

However, a striker in January will be the final piece of the puzzle for Hughton.
