This is what renowned Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano reported on Twitter on Monday. According to him, the side that have just been relegated from the Premier League would be one of many organizations interested in the services of the 20-year-old Canada international.
Representatives of Norwich would even have gone to Washington on Saturday, when the Montreal eleven visited DC United, to convince Koné to join their ranks.
The Ivorian-born player represented the maple leaf for the first time this season. He was cleared from the scoresheet in two FIFA World Cup qualifying matches.
Koné has scored one goal and two assists in 16 appearances for CF Montreal this season.
