Norwich City manager Chris Hughton has confirmed his interest in Sporting Kansas City striker Kei Kamara.
Only Aston Villa, Queens Park Rangers and Stoke City have scored fewer goals than Norwich in the English Premier League his season, prompting unsuccessful bids for Swansea forward Danny Graham and Celtic’s Gary Hooper.
Luciano Becchio is thought to be under consideration after handing in a transfer request at Leeds, while Norwich have also been linked with QPR’s Jamie Mackie, but Hughton is also casting his net a little further by looking at MLS-based Kamara.
“Kei Kamara is a player we have made enquiries about, but any progress remains behind closed doors,” Hughton told reporters.
Sierra Leone international Kamara scored 11 goals in the MLS last season, and spent a week on trial with Stoke in December, but could now be set for a second chance to move to the Premier League after failing to earn a deal at the Britannia.
