Norwich are showing an interest in Horley Town striker Ashley Nadesan but will have to move quickly if they wish to wrap up a deal.
The Canaries have been sending scouts to watch the 22-year-old in action and will have been impressed by what they have seen after he fired home 50 goals this season for the Combined Counties League Premier Division side.
Following the rise of Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy from the non-league, clubs are starting to pay more attention to the talent on offer there and Nadesan is a star in the making.
However Brighton, Colchester and Crawley Town are also keen, while reports suggest that Millwall have already offered him a trial and hope to win the race for his services.
Horley Town manager Anthony Jupp told the Crawley News: “It’s an exciting time for him and we are going to do whatever we can to help him out.
“If he needs permission to talk to a club or go on a trial then that’s fine because we want what is best for him.
“He has been with us for four years now, one with the youth team and three with the first team, and each season he has improved but we know there is a ceiling on that.
“He needs to make the step up now and get some professional, full-time training and really test himself. Everyone at Horley Town is really excited for Ashley and looking forward to seeing where he ends up.”
