The Northern Ireland international has been on a month's loan with The Canaries, with his spell due to end this coming Sunday following the East Anglian derby clash against Ipswich Town.
Healy has impressed Norwich since arriving on loan so much that Worthington has decided to try and claim the hit-man on a permanent deal.
"David's come in here and impressed us," Worthington told the club's official website.
"He's a very clever footballer. Myself, the chief executive and the player's agent sat down yesterday and put something together to offer Preston.
"We're trying to get the lad here on a permanent basis.
"If it does happen it will be a straight cash deal."
Despite Norwich's cash offer for Healy, Preston boss Craig Brown made it clear earlier this month that he intends to bring the striker back to Deepdale at the end of his loan spell.
Brown said: "David, as far as I am concerned, is on loan for one month and one month only.
"The arrangement was that he goes on a month's loan.
"He is a member of our squad, a Preston North End player, a valuable one, our most expensive signing, so we are looking for him back after the month."
Meanwhile, The Canaries have taken defender Leigh Bromby on a month's loan from Sheffield Wednesday.
The 22-year-old has featured in 25 matches this season for The Owls and will be eligible for Tuesday's trip to Gillingham.
Worthington added: "Leigh's made a very promising start to his career at Wednesday but since Chris Turner took over he's found himself fourth or fifth choice."
