Norwich launch transfer swoop for Portugal star William Carvalho but look set to miss out due to his £82k-a-week wages

NORWICH have made a move for Portuguese star William Carvalho.

But the newly-promoted side look set to fail in their bid to land the Real Betis midfielder.

The ace has previously been a target for Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal.

Carvalho, 29, would only cost about £6million.

However, his wages at the Seville-based club are £82,000-a-week after tax.

And Norwich would not be able to afford such a massive deal.

Carrow Road boss Daniel Farke, whose side faces Leicester on Saturday, is desperate for a holding midfielder.

He has not given up on Rostov midfielder Mathias Normann.

The Canaries have failed in a £2m loan move for the Norwegian with a view to a £9m permanent switch if they remain in the Premier League.

The Russian side want the obligation of a permanent move regardless of whether Norwich stay in the top-flight or are relegated.

Normann, 25, failed to make a single appearance in a previous spell at Brighton.

But that has not put off Norwich from wanting him.

And he is also interesting Newcastle.
