Scouts from Liverpool have watched Jones in action several times this season, with £200,000 the rumoured figure required to sign the centre-back. Norwich have become famed for their blooding of youngsters, with Max Aarons and Jamal Lewis both coming through the youth system to become key players, and Liverpool-linked Ben Godfrey also shining since moving from York City.

Norwich City are reportedly eyeing up their first signing of the summer, with Rennes centre-back Mehdi Zeffane a primary target.

That’s according to Le 10 Sport, via the Mirror, who claim that the Canaries are hoping to agree a deal by early June.

Daniel Farke is looking to bolster his squad ahead of their return to the Premier League, following a superb season in the Championship that looks set to end in them being crowned champions.

Defences can often be shown up when teams make the leap up the divisions, so strengthening in that area makes sense.

Zeffane has made 29 appearances for Rennes this season and also has 11 caps for Algeria to his name.

The 26-year-old previously played for Lyon, spending his youth career there as well, up until his move to Rennes in 2015.

He is reportedly keen to play in England, and his current deal expires at the end of the season.

Norwich failed in bid to sign Samaris.
Norwich City failed in a bid to sign Benfica midfielder Andreas Samaris on a free transfer this summer. According to Portuguese outlet O’Jogo, Norwich offered Samaris a contract, but he decided to turn it down and commit his future to Benfica. Instead of joining the Premier League side, Samaris put pen to paper on a new deal at Benfica, taking him through to the summer of 2023. The report claims that Norwich offered Samaris a salary of €2.5m-per-year, as they look to make their first signing of the summer transfer window. Benfica are said to have given him €1.2m-per-year, which means that he declined the chance to double his wage by joining Norwich.
