The attacking midfielder was labelled ‘Mini-Messi’ as his form as a teenager at Tannadice won him a move to Portuguese giants Sporting Lisbon. But it’s his displays at fellow Portuguese side Farense SC that has attracted the interest of Norwich City and others.
Gauld has eight goals and six assists in Liga NOS this season, the top flight in Portuguese football. He has also won the captaincy for spells of the season but will be available for free in the summer as his contract expires in Portugal. It means the likes of Norwich City could get him at a bargain rate.
Other clubs such as Sheffield United, Brentford, Swansea City, Brighton and Blackburn Rovers are also interested alongside the Carrow Road outfit, who will play Premier League football next season. Gauld’s form has resulted in fans calling for the midfielder to be included in Steve Clarke’s 26-man squad for Euro 2020 this summer.
