A recent report has claimed that Norwich may need to brace for a bid from West Ham as the Hammers eye up Scotland international Kenny McLean (The Sun, 29/01/20, page 59).

The Canaries man is currently in his first season of top flight English football. They are, however, six points away from safety and relegation rivals West Ham want to offer him a way out of Carrow Road reportedly.

£10 million is the figure that one of Scotland’s best midfielders is being touted at.

Deadline approaching

With the transfer window shutting this week, West Ham will need to act quick if they’re to secure the Scotland star. So far this term, McLean’s made 26 appearances for Daniel Farke’s side.

McLean started out in St Mirren’s academy before progressing to the Buddies first-team. He’d go on to make over 150 Paisley apperances before moving to Aberdeen, where he would make 158.

It was his Dons form that earned him a move to Carrow Road. Again he has impressed at a new club and a new challenge could beckon for him if West Ham decide to move in.

It’s a deal to keep an eye on as the transfer deadline approaches.
