Norwich City are reportedly leading Crystal Palace and Sheffield United in the race to sign highly-rated Malaga winger Javi Ontiveros.

Norwich City are favourites to sign Malaga winger Javi Ontiveros, according to a report.

The 21-year-old scored five goals in 34 appearances last season as Malaga fell narrowly short of winning promotion back to La Liga.

Crystal Palace and Sheffield United are also interested in Ontiveros, but Norwich are leading the way according to ESPN.

The winger has represented Spain at Under-19 level and is highly rated by Norwich technical director Stuart Webber.

Ontiveros wouldn't be the first signing Norwich have made from the Spanish second tier, with influential attacking midfielder Emiliano Buendia having arrived from Getafe last summer.

The Canaries have already bolstered their attack for their return to the top flight, having completed the loan signing of Patrick Roberts from Manchester City.
