Canaries linked to in-form striker
Norwich boss Paul Lambert is understood to be closely monitoring the form of Burnley striker Jay Rodriguez.
The Clarets striker has just over a year to run on his current contract at Turf Moor and, although Burnley hope they can tie him up to a longer deal, they may be unable to prevent a Premier League club coming up with enough cash to tempt them to sell this summer. Burnley rejected a reported offer of £4.5million from Southampton last summer and, after Rodriguez scored 15 goals in 36 Championship starts this season, may well feel he has retained his value or even added to it this term. Canaries boss Lambert was linked with a move for him during the January transfer window but nothing materialised, however, the City boss may try again when the market re-opens in the next couple of months. Rodriguez, 22, is a product of the Clarets' youth system and has spent time on loan in Scotland with Stirling Albion during his early career. Reports over the weekend also linked Norwich to Wolves defender Roger Johnson who has fallen out of favour at Molineux after a nightmare season. However, it is unlikely that Lambert would be as keen to sign Johnson who he had for a matter of days at Wycombe before the player moved on to Cardiff in 2006.
