Norwich boss Dean Smith said "He has an abundance of skills. He can create and score goals, but also cover a tremendous amount of distance on a football pitch. He wants to get on the ball and look forward, he makes really unselfish runs and is full of energy,"

Sara made his Norwich debut as a 90th minute substitute in the 1-1 home draw with Wigan on 6th August 2022. He then made his full debut against Birmingham in the Carabao Cup on 9th August 2022. Sara scored his first goal for Norwich on 8th October 2022 in the 3-2 home defeat to Preston in the Championship.

On 17th December 2022 it was reported that Italian side Torino had sent scouts to watch Sara. His form, which had included six goals and four assists in 31 appearances at the time of the article, saw the Sunday Mirror claim on 12th March 2023 that West Ham, Athletico Madrid and RB Leipzig were all interested in signing him.

Sara won the Barry Butler Memorial Trophy (Player of the Year) at the end of his first season at Norwich. He played 43 games for Norwich scoring seven goals.

On 8th September 2023 Sara was named as the Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month for August 2023 as Norwich won three of their four games, drawing the fourth at Southampton 4-4. Sara had scored one and provided two assists and topped the league's chart for key passes and big chances created.

On 7th January 2024 the Transfer Centre twitter feed claimed that Sara was Leicester's main target for the January 2024 transfer window with the Foxes willing to pay £20million.
