Norwich are interested in Luton's Steve Howard and Izale McLeod from MK Dons.
Norwich manager Nigel Worthington has admitted that he is interested in Luton striker Steve Howard and Milton Keynes Dons sharpshooter Izale McLeod.
Worthington has switched his attention to the duo after weeks of tracking Leeds forward Rob Hulse proved fruitless.
The Yorkshire club slapped a transfer fee on Hulse's head that was out of The Canaries' reach, but Worthington is still determined to sign a new front man before the start of the season.
He confirmed that an offer has been made to The Hatters for Howard, but Norwich are still waiting for an answer.
"Steve Howard is another option as far as the big man is concerned up front," Worthington told the Pink'un.
"He is somebody we have inquired about and we are trying to follow that one up.
"That's maybe within our capabilities, so we are waiting on a reply from Luton.
"We've made an offer and we are waiting to see what they come back with."
MK Dons manager Martin Allen has told McLeod that he is prepared to let him go and Worthington is mulling over a move for the highly-rated 21-year-old.
"He is a player that we have enquired about," he explained.
"He's a young player with good ability - yes we like him, we have inquired about him, but since that statement has come from Martin Allen I don't know what the asking price is."
