Norwich's pursuit of Chris Gunter could be primarily for his ability to play as a left-back, rather than on his preferred right side.
Canaries boss Paul Lambert twice had bids rejected for the Welsh international in January, before it was claimed last week that Gunter's club - Nottingham Forest had slapped a £4m price-tag on his head.
The 22-year-old defender won his 36th cap for Wales in their midweek defeat to Costa Rica playing in his preferred right-back position, but with City hoping to tie up a deal for on-loan Spurs right-back Kyle Naughton too, Gunter may be attractive to Lambert because of his versatility.
Gunter, who was signed by Tottenham for £2million in 2008, moved to the City Ground for £1.5million a year later and Lambert was hoping to prise him away for a similar fee.
The defender fits the profile of a British, young and top-flight hungry football that the Canaries boss wants to populate his squad with.
Lambert will hope that Welsh teammate Steve Morison paints an attractive picture of the Norwich set-up before the next bid is faxed to the City Ground.
