Tzolis ‘Excited for Norwich Test
Speaking to the club website upon his arrival, Tzolis said: “I would like to thank everyone for the very good welcome. I’m very happy to be a part of this team and I hope to see the fans as fast as possible.
“From the first moment, I was really excited to come here. I said to my agent to sign as fast as possible here. It’s a very good step for me.
“(Last year) was my first professional season. I had good stats and we won the cup in Greece. It was a very good season for me and I hope to continue like this here in the Premier League.”
Head coach Daniel Farke added: “We are all delighted with this signing. There was a lot of interest in Christos from some of the biggest teams in Europe.
“In his age group, Christos is probably one of the most exciting offensive players across European football.”
Career So Far
Tzolis came through the youth academy at PAOK, spending two different periods there before being promoted to the first team in 2019.
In his two years in the first team, he netted 16 times in 46 games, impressing with his brilliant displays.
His performances for PAOK resulted in a full debut for the Greece national team in October 2020 – a 2-1 loss to Austria.
Prior to that, he represented Greece at U17 and U19 level, scoring six goals in nine games for the former.
