Norwich City move for Juventus striker Quagliarella

Reports in Italy have suggested that Norwich City have agreed a fee for Juventus striker Fabio Quagiliarelle.

Manager Chris Hughton has been busy in the transfer market this summer, completing moves for Sporting Lisbon striker Ricky Van Wilfswinkel, Swedish defender Martin Olsson and the proposed move of Dutch international Leroy Fer.

The capture of Quagliarella would be seen as a major coup for the Canaries. Hughton has been looking for reinforcements up front after selling Grant Holt to Wigan

The arrival of Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente at the Turin club has increased competition for places with the Old Lady now having six strikers in their squad.

A fee in the region of £6m has been agreed for the Italian international and now the club must convince the player to swap Serie A for the Premier League.

Quagliarella joined Juventus in 2010 from Italian side Napoli for around £9m. He has made 79 appearances for the Italian champions, scoring 26 goals.
