Norwich City is determined to ward off any potential offers for their forward Jon Rowe amid mounting interest from Premier League clubs, as reported by The Sun.

The 20-year-old has been showcasing his talent in a breakthrough season at Carrow Road, notably scoring a brace against rivals Ipswich Town, taking his season tally to 11 goals. Primarily operating from the flanks, Rowe’s 10 strikes in the Championship rank him among the top scorers, with only two players, Sam Szmodic from Blackburn Rovers (14 goals) and Southampton’s Adam Armstrong (12 goals), having scored more.

Having risen through Norwich’s ranks, Rowe made his debut in 2021 against Crystal Palace. He made 12 Premier League appearances before Norwich’s relegation. Despite an injury-plagued season last year, the England under-21 international made a return to the squad in April.

Wolverhampton Wanderers had shown interest in signing Rowe in the summer, making a £15 million bid in August, which was rejected. The West Midlands club is anticipated to revive their pursuit in January, with Aston Villa potentially joining them.

However, Norwich remains steadfast in their stance, intending to retain Rowe until at least the season’s end. The club values their academy graduate, considering him a crucial part of their squad, especially as they target a play-off spot and a return to the top tier. Norwich holds the advantage with Rowe contracted until 2025.

While their recent form has improved, with manager David Wagner steering the team to 10th place after earlier struggles near the relegation zone, Norwich remains resolute in their decision to keep Rowe. The club sees potential for a substantial windfall, whether they secure promotion to the Premier League or capitalize on his value while remaining in the Championship.
