Norwich to demand club-record deal for their prized assets

Mon 31 May 2021 | 13:13

Norwich City returned to the Premier League and are planning to sell their prized assets should big-money offers enter the table in the summer.

Arsenal

,

Aston Villa

,

Manchester United

, and

Bayern Munich

were told that the Canaries are going to cash in on players like

Emi Buendia

,

Todd Cantwell

and

Max Aarons

if they receive offers of more than £30 million ($43m).

Norwich

are preparing for a Premier League return after bouncing back out of the Championship the first time they were asked.

It is still unknown whether they will keep their prized assets for the next campaign, with Buendia, Cantwell and Aarons’ abilities attracting a lot of attention from clubs around Europe.

The club's sporting director,

Stuart Webber

, has told 

BBC Sport

:

"If we do sell one, it's going to be a club-record deal.

"It's probably going to start with a number three in front of it and that will give us great opportunities to maybe make the whole squad better as well. We’re really relaxed on that front."

The Gunners and Villa have targeted Argentine playmaker Buendia and the Villans are also eager to acquire Cantwell as they aim to be prepared for Jack Grealish’s departure.

Aarons has been linked with a move to United and Bayern; however, Norwich plan to put up a fight.

When they offloaded James Maddison and Ben Godfrey, they were aware that they have to make funds.

Webber has talked about rejoining English football's elite:

"You can spend £120m net and get relegated. That's been proven more than once.

"We can't go all in now just to try to stay up for one season because, if we get relegated, we're in deep, deep trouble.

"You can do that if you have a rich benefactor who says, 'Spend £100m - if it goes wrong, then I can actually afford to write that off'. We don't have that.

"Our version of that would be to go into administration. We can't take that risk."
