The Canaries want to take Powell on-loan.
Norwich City are preparing to make a loan move for Manchester United midfielder Nick Powell this summer in a bid to improve their squad, according to the Sun.
The 19-year-old was signed by the Premier League champions 12 months ago in a £6.6m transfer from Crewe Alexandra.
Since then Powell has made just six appearances for the club and the Red Devils are keen for the youngster to get some more top flight experience.
Wigan Athletic are also interested in the England under-21 international but Norwich have the advantage due to their position in the top tier of English football.
New United manager David Moyes is likely to listen to loan propositions from clubs and Canaries boss Chris Hughton wants Powell to come in to give competition to the likes of Bradley Johnson and Jonny Howson.
The central midfielder broke into the Crewe first team back in 2010 aged just 16 and made 19 appearances for the club in that first season.
It was in the 2011/12 campaign that Powell really made a name for himself however, playing 45 times in all competitions including starts in 37 League Two matches.
The midfielder impressed so much that Moyes’ predecessor Sir Alex Ferguson snapped the Englishman up, although it may be some time until he is a regular first team player at Old Trafford.
Powell is joined by Wilfried Zaha as talented young England players at United who will probably be spending time on-loan at other Premier League clubs next season.
