LATEST UPDATE : City are now pushing hard to sign QPR 26-year-old crucial midfielder

Norwich City want to buy QPR midfielder Chris Willock whether they are promoted or not, according to transfer guru Alan Nixon. The 26-year-old, who came up through Arsenal’s academy system while Canaries sports director Ben Knapper was their loan manager, is out of contract this summer and available for free transfer.

Willock was first linked with Norwich in 2019 following their title-winning promotion to the Premier League, and he joined the Hoops a year later after loan spells at West Brom and Huddersfield Town.

He’s flourished under Marti Cifuentes, scoring four goals and providing four assists in 39 games this season as Rangers improved from relegation contenders to 18th in the Championship.
When asked about Willock’s contract situation last month, Cifuentes stated, “He knows how much we rate him and I think he knows how much we like him.”But I am not sure what will happen in the future. What is certain is that he demonstrated (against Preston) his passion for this club and his desire to play here and help us.”

Knapper and head coach David Wagner have been outspoken about City’s intention to lower the age profile of their squad in the summer, with major changes anticipated if they are successful in the play-offs.

Or not. Five first-team players’ contracts are set to expire this summer, and crucial players such as Gabriel Sara and Jonathan Rowe are expected to be in high demand.

When asked about the ability to shape the Norwich squad during the off-season window in February, Knapper stated, “The summer is naturally the window where you are more equipped to do more. There is greater opportunity and the market is usually a little easier to navigate.

Finding value is generally easier. Although there may be some change in the summer, we want to maintain the strategic orientation I have set for the team.We’re working hard to create a plan, and we’ll enter that window with the intention of continuing what we’ve started.”
