The Sun journalist Alan Nixon has claimed on Twitter that Norwich City want ₤ 25 million as transfer fee for Todd Cantwell in the middle of interest from Leeds United.
The well-respected and popular journalist has recommended that Premier League outfit Leeds do not want that much for the Championship midfielder.
According to The Daily Star, the West Yorkshire club are expected to finish the finalizing of the 22-year-old from Championship side Norwich prior to the summer transfer window in England closes on Friday.
The Whites’ director of football Victor Orta has informed The Yorkshire Night Post that the club are interested in the youngster.

Todd Cantwell Statistics
Cantwell has played two times in the Championship for Norwich up until now this season, according to WhoScored.
During the 2019-20 campaign, the 22-year-old midfielder made 30 starts and 7 substitute appearances in the Premier League, scoring 6 goals and providing 2 assists in the process, according to WhoScored.
Back in the 2018-19 season, the English youngster made 18 starts and 6 substitute appearances in the Championship for the Canaries, scoring one goal and providing 2 assists in the process, according to WhoScored.
Too costly for Leeds United?
While Cantwell is a good midfielder, the 22-year-old is too costly for the reported transfer fee of ₤ 25 million, as the Whites might get somebody more skilled and much better if they invest a bit more in the January transfer window.
