Sources: Norwich City ready £10m bid for Greek sensation Tzolis
Norwich City are lining up a move for Greece international Christos Tzolis, Football Insider can exclusively reveal.
The PAOK winger, 19, has emerged as the golden boy of Greek football and is on the radar of leading clubs across Europe.
A Norwich source has told Football Insider that the club are readying a £10million offer for Tzolis as they look to win the race for his signature.
The teenage sensation has also been linked with the likes of Man United and Borussia Dortmund.
If successful, Norwich’s potential £10m bid for Tzolis would make him the most expensive signing in the club’s history.
That would eclipse the reported £9.4m the Canaries paid for Kosovan winger Milot Rashica earlier in the window.

Tzolis, who has three years remaining on his PAOK deal, won his first Greece cap in 2020.
He has gone on to feature eight times for the national team in total.
The youngster enjoyed his breakthrough season with PAOK in 2019-20 when he scored once in 10 appearances.
But it was in 2020-21 that he really began to sparkle, netting 16 times and providing 10 assists in 46 matches in all competitions.
Five of those strikes came in the Greek Cup, which PAOK won for the fourth time in five seasons.
The wide man was named his side’s Player of the Season after his rip-roaring campaign.
Premier League new boys Norwich have already completed the permanent signing of Dimitris Giannoulis from PAOK after he spent 2020-21 on loan at Carrow Road.
The Canaries have also brought in Ben Gibson, Pierre Lees Melou and Angus Gunn on permanent deals while Chelsea starlet Billy Gilmour has signed on loan.
