Transfer News: Norwich Interested In Boca Juniors Buendia Replacement

Norwich City have quickly identified their preferred replacement for Emiliano Buendia after his club-record transfer to Aston Villa, according to reports.

The club confirmed upon his exit that they would have preferred to keep him, but couldn’t turn down such a substantial sum. What’s more, Buendia himself wanted the move.

Norwich now know they have a big void to fill in their team as they look to make a better attempt at staying up next season.

And according to Argentine source Ole (via The Sun) they have already found someone who they could bring in to replace Buendia.

The player in question is Norberto Briasco, who plays in Argentina for Huracan and represents Armenia internationally (qualifying through his maternal grandfather).

Briasco has spent his entire senior career so far at Huracan, after making his debut in 2016. Now 25 years old, it could be time for him to test himself in Europe.

Norwich have overseen some clever deals in recent years and are hoping Briasco could follow in Buendia’s footsteps. The winger has an asking price of just £3.2m.

That’s double the amount that fellow suitors Boca Juniors are willing to pay. On the other hand, Norwich are ready to meet the full value and have already made contact.

Daniel Farke will then look to strengthen other areas of his squad in an effort to prepare them better for another crack at top-flight football.
