Norwich City target O’Hare given a price tag by Coventry City

Coventry City have placed a £5million price tag on Norwich City target Callum O’Hare, Football Insider understand.

The former Aston Villa attacking midfielder is on Norwich boss Dean Smith’s radar as he enters the summer window.

A recruiting source said Football Insider that Coventry will not stand in the way of O’Hare, 23, if the asking price is met.

Norwich are in the attacking market and are preparing a move for the Villa Academy product, whom Smith knows well.

He is under contract with the Sky Blues until the summer of 2024 after signature a new long-term contract at the start of the year (January 7)

O’Hare was part of Villa’s first team when Smith took over in October 2018 and made his sixth and final first-team appearance for the club under him in the FA Cup in January 2019.

The Solihull-born ace then joined Carlisle United on loan before another temporary move to Coventry that summer.

After a successful season with the Sky Blues, he was released by Villa in the summer of 2020 after being promoted to the Premier League.

A permanent move to Coventry followed and he has now racked up 34 goal contributions in 131 games in all competitions for the club.

Mark Robins’ side are in the hunt for a place in the Championship play-offs this season and are currently ninth, three points behind the top six.

Norwich look destined to return to second place as they are bottom of the Premier League, seven points from safety.
