CHERRIES midfielder Philip Billing has reportedly emerged as a target for promoted Norwich City.

The Mirror claim the Canaries are preparing to reinvest funds back into their squad following the sale of playmaker Emi Buendia to Aston Villa.

According to the publication, Canaries boss Daniel Farke is a “big fan” of Denmark international Billing and Cherries “expect offers” for the midfielder.

Billing signed for Cherries from Huddersfield Town under Eddie Howe for £15million in the summer of 2019.

The Copenhagen-born star has gone on to play 78 times at senior level for the Dorset club, finding the net on 11 occasions.

Normally a central midfielder, the 25-year-old was thrust into a more attacking, number 10 role, under head coach Jonathan Woodgate for the second half of last season.

The positional tweak paid dividends for Cherries, with Billing going on to net seven times under Woodgate.

Billing started both games against Norwich in the Championship last season, as Cherries recorded a league double over the title winners with two wins.
