While Norwich City are being linked with players from all over Europe, could they be about to lose one of their most promising youngsters to a continental giant?

The player in question is 21-year-old Simon Power, who, according to reports, has been attracting the attention of the likes of Borussia Dortmund, Lyon, Ajax and PSV Eindhoven.

Power is a Republic of Ireland Under-21s international, who has yet to make an appearance in Daniel Farke's first team.

However, the pacey winger impressed on the international stage at the Toulon tournament as the Republic reached the semi-finals - and at the same time sparked interest from the continent.

According to the Mirror, Power could be on the way before City's new Premier League campaign gets underway.

City signed Power from Irish club UCD in January last year ago. He signed a new contract this January which keeps him with Norwich until at least 2021 and then joined Dutch second tier side Dordrecht.

Power's spell was hit by an injury and he started just two game sin 10 appearances, and admitted he was keen on another loan.

"To be honest, I think I would like to go on loan because when I was in Holland I didn't prove myself enough, I didn't get as many minutes as I'd hoped," he said.

Meanwhile, City are reportedly facing competition from Championship side West Brom if they want to sign Filip Krovinovic from Benfica, according to Portuguese newspaper Record. Krovinovic has been close to joining Vitória Guimarães, but other reports suggest an increased offer from Norwich would seal a deal.

City were also mentioned in despatches regarding Manchester United keeper Dean Henderson, who, according The Sun, wants to triple his wage to £75,000 a week to sign a new contract at Old Trafford.

They claim the England under-21 stopped sees his long-term future at United and that any approach from interested clubs - Norwich City being one - would be rejected.
