NORWICH are set to sign French ace Pierre Lees-Melou from Nice.

The newly-promoted Canaries are ready to splash £5.1million on the midfielder.

Lees-Melou, 28, has been with the Ligue Un outfit since 2017, where he previously worked under Patrick Vieira, now of Crystal Palace.

Norwich will hope the ex-Dijon ace will add some more firepower to their midfield, after he hit 16 league goals in his last four seasons.

The Frenchman can operate across the midfield, much like Emi Buendia did at Carrow Road, and Daniel Farke will hope he can replace the Argentine effectively.

Lees-Melou would follow the likes of Milot Rashica, Billy Gilmour and Angus Gunn through the Carrow Road doors this summer.

Norwich are clearly not afraid to hold back in the transfer market this time around, having suffered relegation in 2019/20 after not spending much in the two transfer windows.

But now Farke has multiple midfield options to choose from to keep teams guessing, despite losing Oliver Skipp after his loan spell ended.

Gilmour will keep play ticking over with Todd Cantwell offering a goal threat.

Lees-Melou should provide a good balance between attack and defence, and arrives with plenty of top-flight experience, albeit in his native country only.

Ben Gibson has also joined on a permanent basis which means Farke could now focus on adding firepower up-front.

Teemu Pukki scored 26 goals last season and did well in his the early part of his first Premier League season before fading in 2019/20, so Norwich may need more than one natural goalscorer if they are to avoid relegation this time around.
