Arsenal Still Keen on Signing Norwich City Midfielder Emiliano Buendia

Arsenal Step up Chase for Buendia

Only days ago, it appeared that Arsenal would have to wait until the summer to capture Norwich City’s Argentine ace. The Canaries manager Daniel Farke stated: “It makes no sense for any of my key players to leave at this moment. And it makes no sense for us as a club right now to sell any of my players.

“I think if there is a route for one of my best players, then it’s definitely the summer. It’s better for them, better for us, in the summer it could be a topic but in January I don’t see any business.”

Following the comments from Farke, it was understood that Arteta would wait until the summer transfer window to attempt to sign Buendia. The imminent signing of Odegarrd appeared to back this up, but it now seems that the Arsenal boss will make a move before the end of the month.

A Huge Bid May Be Required

With Norwich not wanting to lose players mid-season, and also not needing to sell, it would take a huge offer from Arsenal to make any deal happen this month.

Sky Sports’ Kaveh Solhekol has advised that 24-year-old Buendia, who has seven goals and seven assists to his name in 21 games this season, would only see amove to the Emirates materialize should a “crazy offer” from Arsenal tempt City to sell. Solhekol claims that an offer in the region of £40-£50 million would need to be made for any discussions to begin this month.
