Norwich have moved into the transfer market to snap up Borussia Monchengladbach striker Josip Drmic on a three-year deal.

The 26-year-old has spent the last four years with the Bundesliga club but will be out of contract on July 1 and is now ready for a fresh challenge with the Canaries.

The striker has been capped 32 times by Switzerland and boss Daniel Farke, who has targeted a new striker, is delighted to have got him on board.

‘We made it clear we wanted to sign a new striker and we have found a guy who has proved himself at the highest level,’ the Canaries boss said.

‘He has had a difficult couple of years with injuries, but we feel he is the full package.

Two or three years ago, some of the biggest clubs in Europe were interested in him.

‘ Drmic says the influence of Farke played a huge part in his decision to join Norwich, and is looking forward to getting started with his new club.

‘We had a long conversation as I had a lot of questions and he spoke very, very positively about the club,’ he told the club’s website.
