Norwich City’s new signing Lewis Grabban is ready to spearhead Neil Adams’ bid to take the Championship by storm.
The former Bournemouth striker moved to the Canaries last week after a prolific 22-goal stint on the south coast last season.
The 26-year-old had been linked with Brighton and Cardiff City but Adams’ hard sell convinced him to move to Carrow Road.
“When I listened to the manager’s philosophy on attacking football, it was a similar to the philosophy at Bournemouth,” Grabban told the Bournemouth Echo. “It’s important when a settled player moves on that they don’t go into a team that uses a completely different style, because it just might not work.
“I think Eddie Howe is getting it right and the manager at Norwich has similar philosophies - he wants to play attacking, passing football and dominate possession.
“I liked that aspect of what he wanted to do and the club’s ambitions matched my ambitions to get to the Premier League. Bournemouth have got a good chance of getting there, but I do feel that Norwich have a lot of Premier League experience and also experience of getting to the Premier League, so maybe they might edge it on that. The opportunity to go to a club of that size was one I didn’t want to turn down.”
