Report: Milan enquire about €56m-rated Norwich star linked with Dortmund and Leipzig

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan and Roma have become the latest clubs to join the race for Norwich City defender Ben Godfrey, according to a report.

According to Calciomercato.it, the two Serie A giants have made enquiries through an intermediary for Godfrey, speaking in particular to Jamie Moralee – the CEO of New Era Global Sports – and Rashid Uddin, the Head of Overseas Markets of New Era Global Sports.

Sky Sports are reporting that Bundesliga duo Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig are among those keen to sign the England U21 international, with Norwich ready to demand £50m (€56m) for the 22-year-old.

The Premier League side believe that the youngster will become an England senior first-team regular in the future and therefore they will demand a high price for him even despite the fact they are almost certain to be relegated.

He represents a profile in line with Milan’s reported project involving youth players that can be developed, and he has made 29 appearances across all competitions so far this season.
