Norwich City have signed Werder Bremen striker Josh Sargent on a four-year £ 8m deal.
The 21-year-old US international was one of the few players to emerge with merit from the 2020/21 season in Bremen, which ended with relegation.
He scored seven goals in all competitions and also scored twice on the first day of the 2nd Bundesliga last weekend against Fortuna Düsseldorf.
Sargent is also one of America’s brightest talents on the international stage, having already made 16 appearances in youth football with an outstanding scoring record.
Speaking to canaries.co.uk, Sargent said: “I’ve always wanted to play in the Premier League so it’s a very exciting opportunity for me.
“I’ve heard it’s a good group of guys and I’ve already spoken to the head coach and I really like what they’re trying to do here.
“I like to think my main position is number nine, but I’m also very versatile. No matter where I play, anyone can expect me to do my best, my 100 percent, and hopefully score a few goals.”
Head coach Daniel Farke added: “We are very excited to have Josh with us. He is at a young age with a lot of potential.
“He’s a very good forward option for us, but he can also play on the wing. He’s got speed and he’s good in his head. We know he’s always there with a lot of work and has a fantastic character.”
“We know that we have to be a little more creative in the transfer market. We believe that in Josh we have a player who can contribute and develop into a top scorer at Premier League level. We see his potential and are happy to have him with us. “.”
Sargent is following in the footsteps of former teammate Milot Rashica, who also moved from Werder Bremen to Norwich at the beginning of the summer.
