US international Josh Sargent has reached an agreement with newly promoted Norwich City to move to the Premier League, which is still pending, sources told CBS Sports.

His current club Werder Bremen, relegated to the second Bundesliga last season, wanted to keep Sargent’s service or at least earn a € 10m transfer fee for him, and Norwich has made a deal for the 21-year-old onwards. CBS Sports announced last month that Bremen had turned down an offer for his services from Norwich, but it had long been expected that the USMNT star would move on after his side’s relegation.

Sargent was Bremen’s top scorer last season with seven goals and started the new season in strong form when he scored two goals in a 3-2 win at Fortuna Düsseldorf last week. At the international level, Sargent was part of the US squad that won the Concacaf Nations League that summer and started at the top of Gregg Berhalter’s attack in both games.

His likely arrival on Carrow Road would give Norwich head coach Daniel Farke more options behind first center-forward Teemu Pukki. Current substitute strikers Jordan Hugill and Adam Idah only scored seven goals in the championship last season.

Speaking of the Canary Islands’ transfer business earlier this week, Farke said: “I’m pretty confident we will have more additions and I think we’ll be in a good position by the end of August.”
