While the Canaries were outclassed during their last season in the Premier League, Farke has made a number of eye-catching additions to give his squad every chance of survival this time around.
The signing of Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour stands out, but the arrival of Milot Rashica will make up for the exit of previous key man Emiliano Buendia.
Although Farke will acknowledge that he will have to conduct further business over the coming weeks, he will be happy with where his squad are at ahead of a brutal opening triple-header against Liverpool, Manchester City and Leicester City.
