Transfer Rumour: Norwich In Talks With Norwegian International Orjan Nyland

Norwich City have held talks over the possible signing of goalkeeper Orjan Nyland, a report from the Eastern Daily Press has claimed.

Nyland is a free agent after leaving Aston Villa back at the end of the summer transfer window, and it was recently reported that the Canaries are one of several Championship clubs considering a move for the 30-year-old.

Now it seems as though Daniel Farke’s side have taken steps to potentially bring the Norwegian international to Carrow Road this month.

According to the latest reports, Norwich have now held talks with representatives of Nyland about a potential move

It is thought that both club and player are now weighing up whether or not this would be a move that suits them, with a decision not expected to come before Norwich’s trip to Wales to face Cardiff on Saturday afternoon.

That means that with Tim Krul in isolation and Michael McGovern injured, 18-year-old Dan Barden is reported to be set for his league debut against Neil Harris’ side.

Norwich are also said to have several other options under consideration apart from Nyland, amid some concerns about the Norway international’s fitness after several months out of the game.

Transfer Rumour: Arsenal Drop Interest In Norwich's Emi Buendia

Despite having tracked him for most of the last year if not longer, it is now being reported in the press today that Premier League side Arsenal are no longer interested inmaking the signing of attacker Emi Buendia from Norwich City.

The 24-year-old has been been a starring man and consistantly a top performer in the EFL Championship this season, scoring seven goals and providing a further seven assists in the 19 games he has been involved in so far.  As with all the various reports and articles that have been around for weeks now, the Gunners were supposedly planning to make a move for him during the January transfer window.

However, as per reports published today by the Express, Arsenal have now withdrawn their interest as Norwich City have sought a transfer fee in the region of £40 million for their in demand player.

The report claims: “Arsenal have decided not to pursue Emi Buendia after Norwich quoted them a £40million fee for the playmaker, according to reports.

“Norwich want £40m for their midfielder, money the Gunners simply don’t have at the current moment in time.”

Emi Buendia has been on fine form for Norwich throughout the 2020-21 season and such a player would very easily uplift the quality and creativity of Arsenal’s forward line for the remainder of this season and beyond.  Anyone who has watched Arsenal regularly would say that Nicolas Pepe and Willian have been really average since the start of the season and right now, it’s young Bukayo Saka who has been doing that right winger’s job for Mikel Arteta's side.

But the amount Norwich City are currently seeking is a long way out of reach for Arsenal, especially since they understood to have other priorities in this transfer window as well.  Mikel Arteta’s primary focus for now has be to find a long-term replacement to Mesut Ozil and bringing in someone of such a world-class stature and reputation will require a lot of money to be spent.

Transfer News: Tottenham Confirm Skipp To Stay On Loan At Norwich Until End Of Season

Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho has stated that he has no intention of recalling Oliver Skipp from his loan spell with Norwich City, with the Portuguese telling Football London that he’s happy with the player’s progress with the Canaries.

The young central midfielder was given an opportunity to hone his undoubted talent away from North London, with Norwich winning the race to sign the player back in August of last year in what is the 20-year-old’s first ever temporary switch away from him boyhood club.

Skipp has largely impressed for Daniel Farke’s side, appearing in 23 league games to date as the Canaries have ascended to the top of the Championship standings.

Asked if he would be looking to recall the player this month after his good form, Mourinho was quick to play down such talk:

“In a selfish perspective it would be good to bring him back now, but we’re not selfish. The players are very important. The future is very important the best thing for him is to finish the season there.

“Very successful loan for us and also for Norwich. We’re very happy that he’s playing and he’s playing well. He’s playing to win and to win titles so he has that pressure on him too.

“He’s playing two or three matches a week so there’s also a physical development. Next season he’s back, but we believe that for this season we think it’s best for him to stay at Norwich and he’s also very happy with that.”

Having originally made his debut for Spurs back in 2019, Skipp is viewed a s a great prospect by the club’s hierarchy and currently has a contract with them until 2024.

Transfer Rumour: Benfica Latest Club Linked to Emi Buendia

Valencia will rival Arsenal for the signing of Emiliano Buendia from Norwich City, according to reports emerging today in the media.

The Gunners have been closely linked for quite some time now with the 24-year-old to improve their creative attacking options in midfield, an area felt to be lacking in their side at the moment.

It’s thought that Norwich will want at least £40 million for the playmaker.

According to Spanish source La Razon (via Goal), Arsenal will have to fend off interest from Valencia to sign Buendia.

Buendia is currently enjoying a great season in the Championship, hence the interest from two big European clubs.

He’s scored seven goals and assisted a further seven in 19 league appearances this term. That includes a stunning first time volley in the recent 1-0 victory over Barnsley for Norwich.

Buendia was also one of their star men in the Premier League during the 2019/20 season, his exciting attacking play and keen eye for a pass seem to have Arsenal fans wanting a closer look.

Recent reports suggest Arsenal are willing to pay £40 million plus two players for Buendia, with Reiss Nelson and Joe Willock two players reportedly being considered as part of a part exchange deal.

Valencia also want Buendia to add more quality to their midfield. The Spanish side currently sit 13th in La Liga after 18 matches, and are looking to reinvest some of the money that they gained from selling Ferran Torres and Rodrigo last summer.

Another alternative for them that they are reported to be considering is Harry Winks, who has been linked with a loan move away from Tottenham Hotspur recently.

The Englishman has received limited game time under boss Jose Mourinho. He has made seven Premier League appearances this season but rarely seems to complete a full 90 minutes. A fact that is sure to be concerning for a player who will want to find his way into England’s European Championships squad this summer.

Buendia has previously said that returning to the Prem would be a ‘dream’ for him. Whether that is with Arsenal or Norwich is yet to be determined.

Transfer Rumour: Buendia to Arsenal - The Story Continues

It's the rumour that won't go away, and now former Gunners striker Kevin Campbell has urged Arsenal to sign Emiliano Buendia and says the Norwich City star would be ‘perfect’ for Mikel Arteta’s side.

The Gunners have expressed interest in signing Buendia, who has emerged as Norwich’s best player since joining the club from Getafe in 2018. Arteta is said to be hoping to add another creative player to his squad, with the Arsenal boss unwilling to offer a lifeline to Mesut Ozil, who looks set to leave either this month or in the summer.

Buendia has emerged as a potential target for Arsenal and former Gunners striker Campbell believes he would be a ‘very clever signing’ for Arteta. ‘I think he would be a very clever signing,’ Campbell told Football Insider. ‘I like him. He has the qualities that Mikel Arteta is looking for in a player. Not only can he pick a pass, he can score and he works hard. ‘He has that energy which has been missing from the team for long periods of this season.

‘I think there is some really good players in the Championship and Buendia is one of them. He would fit what Arteta wants to do perfectly. ‘I know Norwich will be desperate to keep him but this is Arsenal and business is business. ‘I am sure Buendia would want to join Arsenal, that is for sure.’ Arsenal beat Newcastle United 2-0 in the third round of the FA Cup on Saturday and face Crystal Palace on Thursday evening.

Transfer Rumour: Norwich Contemplating Move For Chelsea Attacker Lucas Piazon

Chelsea are reportedly set to terminate the contract of long-serving attacker Lucas Piazon, per an article that has appeared in The Sun this weekend, paving the way for Stoke City and Championship front runners Norwich City who are both believed to be interested in signing him to make an approach for him.

The 26-year-old signed for the Blues back in 2011 when he was just a 17-year-old, but despite a impressive reputation at the time he never hit the heights expected of him and has gone on to make just one league appearance in the nine years he has spent contracted as a professional at the West London club.

As many Chelsea youth signings do, Piazon went on to spend the first few years of his Blues career out on loan to the likes of Malaga, Vitesse and Eintracht Frankfurt to try and help further his development as a senior player, before he was given a chance to impress on the English domestic stage at both Reading and Fulham between 2015 and 2018.

Piazon managed to score a total of 10 times for Fulham in the 51 games he played in on loan at the club, however as the years have gone on, his chances of progressing into the Chelsea first team squad have grown a lot slimmer, and he’s spent the last year and a half out on loan again, this time at Portuguese top-flight club Rio Ave.

TuttoMercato have reported this week that Piazon was wanted by Championship sides Stoke and Norwich along with French club Bordeaux and they will all be monitoring his situation with great interest following the reports emerging that Chelsea are seemingly ready to pay the rest of his contract off.  This will certainly go a long way to making it easier for his suitors to negotiate a deal to secure his services, so Norwich City Head Coach Daniel Farke amongst others will be placed on high alert.

Transfer Rumour: Norwich Have Eyes On Aston Villa Goalkeeper Orjan Nyland

Norwich City are reportedly interested in a deal to sign Aston Villa goalkeeper Orjan Nyland according to an article published yesterday on the Pinkun.

Nyland has struggled to get first team game time with Dean Smith’s side this season, and as yet he is still to make a league appearance for Villa this season due to the impressive performances from the club's summer arrival Emiliano Martínez.

As a consequence reports suggest that Nyland could be set for a move elsewhere in the January transfer window, with Norwich City believed to be keen on a deal to sign the Norwegian shot-stopper at least on loan until the end of the season as cover for injured goalkeeper Michael McGovern who is likely to be out until the end of term with a hamstring injury.

A move to the Carrow Road based club could be tempting the 30-year-old as well, with the Norwich well in contention to win promotion back into the Premier League at the first time of asking sitting four points clear at the half way stage of the season.
