Green Light for Canaries: Manchester City Prospect Bound for Norwich
The 18-year-old Ogwuru joined Manchester City on a scholarship in 2021 and later assisted the club’s U18s in capturing their respective league championship the following year.
He has appeared in a few games for the U21 team as well. In 26 competitive games for City’s U18s, he has scored 15 goals and contributed five assists.
But now that Football Insider has reported that the Canaries have reached an agreement with the striker on a permanent move, it appears as though the forward will be joining Norwich City.
According to the same report, Ogwuru is currently on route to Norwich City for a physical. The Championship club has already acquired eight new players this summer, the most of whom came on free transfers.
One for the future
There are some good young players on Norwich City’s roster, many of whom came up via the academy or were signed as teenagers around Ogwuru’s age; two examples are Andrew Omobamidele and Jonathan Rowe.
Ogwuru now has a good understanding of how to make the first team at Norwich City, who are off to a strong start in the 2023–24 season under David Wagner.
His team is now in second place in the Championship standings after its first four games, and the rumored addition of Ogwuru will boost the positive vibes at the club as we draw closer to tomorrow’s 11 p.m. transfer deadline.
Norwich City return to action away at strugglers Rotherham United this weekend, with kick off at 3pm on Saturday.
