U.S. international Josh Sargent is in advanced talks over a move to the Premier League with newly promoted Norwich City, sources told CBS Sports.

His current club Werder Bremen, who were relegated to the second tier of German football last season, had been looking to retain Sargent’s services or at least earn a €10 million fee for him and Norwich are understood to be closing in on a deal for the 21-year-old forward. CBS Sports revealed last month that Bremen had turned down one 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 has begun the new term in strong form, scoring twice in a 3-2 win at Fortuna Dusseldorf last week. At international level, Sargent was part of the U.S. squad that won the CONCACAF Nations League this summer, starting at the top of Gregg Berhalter’s attack in both games.

His likely arrival at Carrow Road would give Norwich head coach Daniel Farke further options behind first choice center forward Teemu Pukki. Current back up strikers Jordan Hugill and Adam Idah scored just seven goals between them in the Championship last season.

Speaking on the Canaries’ transfer business earlier this week, Farke said: “I’m pretty, pretty confident that we will have further additions and in the end of August I think we will be in a good situation.”
