Neil Adams says Lewis Grabban’s arrival is a sign of things to come.SPEAKING to media this week after securing the signature of AFC Bournemouth’s top striker Lewis Grabban, Norwich City manager Neil Adams made it clear that work doesn’t stop now in addressing the lack of goals that hampered City’s progress last season.
“I’ve got targets identified, and one of the things I said to everyone at the end of last season is we didn’t score enough goals, it goes without saying. That’s obviously a priority in the transfer strategy,” he said.
“Lewis has joined us – does that mean it’s the end of it? Not at all.”
Grabban’s prolific goals record last season meant City needed to overcome significant competition for his signature, but after talking to the striker at length Adams says City’s ambition was a good match for his own.
“I think he likes what he’s seen from previous games, the way we set teams up to attack. He’ll fit in perfectly with the work ethic, because he’s a hard-working player – something we’re demanding from the players. And as I said to him, hopefully in 12 months’ time he’ll be a Premier League player.
“Yes there was other interest in him, but he feels this is where he needs to be playing his football."
