Is this Premier League striker the man to fire the Canaries to the Championship playoffs?

Norwich City have turned their fortunes around over the festive period with two victories and one draw which has seen them rise to 13th in the Championship table. Under manager Daniel Farke the ‘Canaries’ have struggled to find the back of the net though in the league campaign as they have only scored 26 goals, something which the German manager will need to address this transfer window.

The club have Cameron Jerome, Nelson Oliveira and Marley Watkins as registered first team strikers, but with Oliveira leading the trio with 7 goals on the goalscoring charts, it is clear to see that the club need to add some firepower to their team.

With that in mind, the club should turn their attention to West Ham striker Diafra Sakho.

Diafra Sakho – The Senegalese striker wants a move away from the Olympic Stadium and tried to force through a transfer in the summer to French club Rennes but that failed to get completed.

Since coming to England Sakho, has had a decent return in front of goal as he found the back of the net 12 times in all competitions in his first season with the club, before going on to score 7 goals last season. This season he has found game time hard to come by but with his previous season’s record, it shows if given games he will score goals.

He is a wanted man this month as Swansea City are also rumoured to be looking to complete a deal for him, so Norwich would have to move quickly, but he is a player that certainly could help fire the club up the Championship table.

Norwich should sign this prolific striker

Norwich City have made a disastrous start under the tenure of Daniel Farke. The Canaries have picked up just one league victory in five games and scored just six goals in their campaign so far.

Their one league victory came against Queens Park Rangers and since then, they have gone on to lose their next two games and conceded four goals in both. Despite conceding so many goals, the club has strength in depth in their defensive ranks so can rotate the squad to hopefully find the correct formula to keeping the opposition out.

One area of the pitch the club could do with adding bodies to though is up front, as they currently just have three strikers in Nelson Oliveira, Cameron Jerome and Marley Watkins. With this in mind the club should turn their attentions to Sheffield Wednesday striker Jordan Rhodes, who has been linked with a move away from Hillsborough.

Jordan Rhodes – Having had plenty of football league experience playing for no fewer than 10 clubs, the Scottish international is a prolific goal scorer in the Championship.

Rhodes scored over 160 goals for Huddersfield Town and Blackburn Rovers respectively and grabbed a brace in this seasons EFL Cup game for Sheffield Wednesday against Bolton Wanderers, showing that he certainly has an eye for goal.

Recent reports have suggested that Rhodes has been linked with a move away from Hillsborough and with the window shutting tomorrow the ‘Canaries’ are going to have to move quickly to add him to their ranks.
