Indeed, his 24 league goals this season have come from just 38 shots on target.
His performances have, naturally, seen a host of clubs watching him closely. Sources revealed to TEAM that Norwich is among those who are enthusiastic.
The Canaries have remained loyal to many of the players who brought them to the Premier League last time around. However, the club’s hierarchy understands they need to give boss Daniel Farke more options to help them stay in place this time around.
Giakoumakis is emerging as a target – although there is also great interest in Holland. However, the Premier League is a huge draw for any player and Norwich feels like they have a real scream.
