Championship side Norwich City are once again being linked with Modibo Diakite, the 29-year-old France international currently plying his trade in the Serie A with Sampdoria.
Former Sunderland centre back has been linked with a move to Carrow Road outfit all the way back in 2013, but according to reports from the Italian news agency Sport Mediaset the Canaries have renewed their interest for the experienced defender.
The player who began his career at youth level with Sampdoria made his return to Italy in 2015 after spells with Sunderland and Deportivo La Coruna.
Norwich City are looking for reinforcements in January in order to boost their chances of sealing a swift return back to the Premier League following their 2015-16 relegation from the English top tier and have identified Diakite as good addition to Alex Neil team’s backline.
The Canaries are currently occupying the fourth place in the standings, but are only one point adrift of Huddersfield and Brighton in second and third.
