CF Montreal: Ismaël Koné in the crosshairs of an English club


Promising Canadian midfielder Ismaël Koné, who made his debut for CF Montreal this season in Major League Soccer (MLS), has reportedly caught the eye of English club Norwich FC.

That's 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 are one of many organizations interested in the services of the 20-year-old Canada international.

Representatives from Norwich have even reportedly visited in Washington on Saturday, when the Montreal XI visited D.C. United to convince Koné to join their ranks.

The Ivorian-born player represented the maple leaf for the first time this season. He has been cleared from the scoresheet in two FIFA World Cup qualifying games.

Koné has scored one goal and two assists in 16 appearances for CF Montreal this season.
