PSV’s Toivonen is heading to Carrow Road.
Norwich City have agreed a fee with PSV Eindhoven, believed to be around £5.5m, to sign forward Ola Toivonen, reports the Mirror.
The Sweden international has been a target for the Canaries for some time and PSV have confirmed they have accepted the offer, now it is down to Toivonen to agree terms.
“We have an agreement with Norwich, and it’s now up to Ola if he wants the move,” technical director at the Dutch club Marcel Brands was quoted in the Mirror.
Norwich are aiming to bolster their attacking options this summer and have already secured an £8.8m deal to sign Ricky Van Wolfswinkel from Sporting Lisbon.
Whilst manager Chris Hughton also has club captain Grant Holt at his disposal up-front, the boss has pinpointed Toivonen as the perfect foil for Van Wolfswinkel.
The 26-year-old hardly lacks experience having been a regular at PSV for four-and-a-half years since a £3.5m transfer from Malmo in his home nation in January 2009.
Toivonen also has 30 caps for Sweden and has scored six goals during an international career that has seen the attacking midfielder play at the European Championships in 2012.
The Swede would be another great coup for Norwich with the forward also having gained vital Champions League and Europa League experience during his time at PSV.
In the 2012/13 campaign Toivonen spent four months on the sidelines with injury, but still managed to score 10 times in 24 appearances as well as providing four assists.
If the PSV man were to sign at Carrow Road it would be the club’s third signing of the close season following the arrival of Van Wolfswinkel and Javier Garrido from Lazio.
