Norwich City are closing in on Sporting Lisbon striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel.

The Pink 'Un says Norwich City have agreed a deal to take Sporting Lisbon striker and January target Van Wolfswinkel to Carrow Road, according to Wednesday night reports in Portugal.

Several newspapers in the country carried the news that the Canaries had brokered a deal in London during Wednesday to land the highly-rated 24-year-old Dutch forward for a cut-price move in the summer.

While City boss Chris Hughton's push to bring in the Dutch international during January ultimately failed, Portuguese sources now point to the 6ft 1in striker being a Norwich player come next season.
