Transfer Rumour: Emi Buendia Linked With January Move With Arsenal & Leeds Interested

One of the players key to Norwich's current table-topping form has been Emi Buendia - and the Canaries are bracing themselves for interest in the Argentine winger. Sky Sports News reported in the summer that he has a number of admirers in Spain including Atletico Madrid and Valencia.

Norwich are also in the process of identifying potential left-wing replacements for Buendia should a bid come in next month, with the Norfolk club looking for a fee in the region of £25m.

Buendia has previously been linked with Arsenal, while Aston Villa boss Dean Smith has also been keen on him in the past - but it is not clear whether Villa are targeting a player in this position, and Leeds are understood to have a long standing interest too having been put off by the price tag originally in the summer.

Buendia has made an impressive start to the season for the Canaries and has helped them rise to the top of the Championship table. He has scored six goals and gained seven assists in 16 appearances in all competitions this term.

There is no doubt he has quality at this level and may want to test himself in the Premier League again. However, with the way things are going for his side they may well be getting promoted again this term.

Buendia moved to Carrow Road in 2018 from Getafe and not many Football League fans knew much about him when he rocked up in England.

He has since impressed for Norwich and helped them win the Championship title in his first year at the club. He couldn’t prevent them from relegation in the last campaign but they are now hoping to make amends for that.

Buendia still has a couple of years left on his contract so they are under no pressure to sell up.
