Josh King spent the first half of last season with Bournemouth before being loaned out to Everton where he failed to make one Premier League start, and moving to a club like Norwich as a free agent could rebuild his confidence according to Marcus Bent.
King’s name has been linked with a whole host of clubs who are on the hunt for a new striker this summer, but a move to a club like Norwich where there won’t be high expectations and somewhere he could possibly feel like a big fish in a small pond could be what is needed to get his career back on track.
Should Norwich sign King?
In all competitions last season, King failed to find the back of the net in 23 league appearances for both Bournemouth and Everton, however he has scored 48 goals in the Premier League so his experience could be what’s attracted the Canaries to him.
Considering he has made 172 appearances in the Premier League, King will certainly want to be back in the top flight so newly-promoted Norwich could be a great club for him to get back that confidence and feel appreciated – that’s according to Bent who spoke exclusively to This is Futbol:
“Obviously he wants to be in the Premier League and Norwich are a good footballing side with a good stadium and a good number of youngsters coming through.
“So, him going to Norwich and into the Premier League would be a good move for him to get his confidence back and move his career forward.”
It could be a signing that one club takes a punt on late in the window and turns out to be a great piece of business, however if he shows why Carlo Ancelotti never gave him a chance at Everton it could turn out to be an expensive signing.
