Skysports.com understands Norwich are closing in on the signing of Fiorentina striker Arturo Lupoli.
Lupoli is believed to have flown into England to finalise a loan switch to Carrow Road.
The former Arsenal youngster has been made available for loan by Fiorentina and Norwich have stolen a march on their rivals by agreeing a deal with the Italian side.
Canaries boss Glenn Roeder is a big fan of Lupoli and believes he could be a valuable addition to his squad.
Lupoli, who had a successful spell on loan at Derby in 2006, is set to hold talks with Norwich officials and undergo a medical on Tuesday and Norwich are hoping to tie up a move soon.
Meanwhile, Roeder has yet to decide on the future of trialist Stuart Nelson.
Nelson is currently on trial at Norwich after leaving Leyton Orient and he has featured for Roeder's side in pre-season.
"He's been a good lad to have in the group," Roeder told the Norwich Evening News. "He's shown some good qualities in the practices we've had on the training ground.
"He hasn't been worked at all in either game he's played in, so until he gets a much sterner test it will be difficult to make a decision."
