Norwich City 2021 Summer Transfer Window Report Card

Share

An incredible summer transfer window is over. Whilst it was slow to get going due to the various international tournaments during June and July, it turned into one of the more wild rides in Premier League transfer window history.

It had everything from records being broken to legends returning home. With that in mind, let’s take a look at how some of the less prominent sides in the Premier League fared this year. Norwich City easily returned to the Premier League, on their first attempt, almost scoring 100 points as Emiliano Buendia led the way with a season like one we have never seen before in the English second tier.

Unfortunately, Buendia has gone. Shirking the interest of Arsenal and joining Dean Smith’s Villa revolution.

The club reinvested cleverly with the signing of Milot Rashica and Josh Sargent bolstering attack and the “Scottish Messi” Billy Gilmour signing from Chelsea on loan. 

The business really picked up as the window drew to a close. Firstly, the summer-long pursuit of  Norwegian Matthias Normann reached its conclusion when he joined from Russian side, Rostov.

The club hierarchy hopes he can be the added protection that their leaky defence needs from the midfield. 

Then they completed a deal for Ozan Kabak from Schalke to further sure up that defense. Despite his Liverpool time not exactly being defined as a success, it must be remembered that the expectations at Carrow Road, compared to Anfield, are worlds apart.
