Norwich City hint at Fabio Quagliarella move
Norwich boss Chris Hughton has refused to rule out a move for Juventus striker Fabio Quagliarella.
Hughton did not deny an interest in the 30-year-old, instead comparing the scenario to his pursuit of Gary Hooper, who joined from Celtic last week.
"That is a story I have seen and heard. But it was exactly the same with our work with Gary," he said.
- Born: 31 January 1983
- 25 Italy caps, seven goals
- Clubs: Torino, Ascoli, Sampdoria, Udinese, Napoli, Juventus
"Most were aware there was an interest. Until there was something official to say then we didn't say it."
He added: "From our side we did our work in the correct way [for Hooper], which is very much behind the scenes."
Quagliarella, who has seven goals in 25 caps for Italy, scored 13 times in 34 games for Juventus last season.
A former Torino forward, he has vast experience in Serie A with Sampdoria, Udinese and Napoli.
"The fact that some players are being linked with us is in some ways a good thing, because it means we are trying to be proactive and trying to improve," said Hughton.
"But certainly until there's anything to say it's all speculation."
