Canaries boss Chris Hughton wants the winger after losing Elliott Bennett to injury.
Socceroos midfielder James Troisi is closing in on a season-loan switch to the Premier League with Norwich City.
Football Australia understand that Troisi, currently co-owned by Juventus and Atalanta, was informed by his Italian employers that he was free to leave before the transfer window ends and a return to England looks a strong possibility.
Championship side Blackburn Rovers were mooted as a possible destination for the 25-year-old but its now emerged that he is in talks with the Canaries as boss Chris Hughton seeks a replacement for Elliott Bennett after he was ruled out for the rest of the campaign following a knee ligament injury suffered in pre-season.
Troisi and Hughton were previously at Newcastle together for a year before the player departed St James’ Park in 2008 without playing a senior first team game for the Magpies, moving to Turkey where he wore the colours of Gençlerbirligi and then Kayserispor.
From there he moved to Juventus in August 2012, with the current Serie A champions selling half of his rights to Atalanta as part of the deal that took Manolo Gabbiadini to the Juventus Stadium.
Should the move come to fruition, Troisi would join fellow Australian and Crystal Palace skipper Mile Jedinak in England’s top-flight.
