Norwich City are interested in signing Salernitana's Malian international midfielder Lassana Coulibaly, according to reports in Italy.

The Canaries are said to face competition from fellow English sides Nottingham Forest and Leicester City for Coulibaly's signature.

The Reds were linked with Coulibaly in January, and Steve Cooper's side will attempt to sign him again this summer according to Tutto Mercato.

Funding a move for the 27-year-old could prove difficult for the Norfolk club, after those links suggested a £7million price tag in winter.

Norwich are in the process of overhauling their squad after a disappointing 13th-placed finish last season, with a number of changes expected to made to the playing squad before the 2023-24 campaign kicks off.

Ashley Barnes was announced as their first signing this week on a free transfer from Burnley, but adding numbers to his group will be key for head coach David Wagner after the departures of six players at the end of their contracts.

Sporting director Stuart Webber is reportedly keen to sell Andrew Omobamidele and Max Aarons to fund a summer of change, but finances are still set to be limited as he looks to prepare the club for another tilt at the Championship.

Coulibaly started his career with French side Bastia, moving to Angers in 2017. He spent time on loan with Glasgow Rangers and Cercle Brugge before joining Salernitana in the summer of 2021.

He's scored three goals in 32 Serie A appearances this season, and boasts 30 full international caps with Mali.
