Arsenal make big move and submit £30 million offer to sign 16 assist midfielder

Arsenal have reportedly made a£30million bid for Norwich forward Emi Buendia.

Buendia, 24, was named the Championship Player of the Season after helping the Canaries seal an immediate return to the Premier League with 15 goals and 16 assists across an eye-catching individual campaign.

His performances for Norwich over the past 12 months has led to constant speculation that Mikel Arteta is very keen to take him to the Emirates, to give his Arsenal side a bit more creativity in that midfield area

According to The Sun, Norwich have accepted Buendia will leave this summer and want £40m for the Argentine. Arsenal just confirmed Martin Odegaard will return to Madrid following his successful loan spell at the Emirates, leaving a gap in their squad for Buendia to fill.

Norwich sporting director Stuart Webber recently claimed a club-record transfer fee is required for the midfielder: ‘If we do sell one, it’s going to be a club-record deal,’ he told BBC Sport.

‘It’s probably going to start with a number three in front of it and that will give us great opportunities to maybe make the whole squad better as well.

‘We’re really relaxed on that front.’

But Webber insists Norwich are ‘really relaxed’ over star trio Buendia, Todd Cantwell and Max Aarons, despite intense speculation they could be on their way out of Carrow Road.

‘If we do sell one, it’s going to be a club-record deal,’ he told BBC Sport.

‘It’s probably going to start with a number three in front of it and that will give us great opportunities to maybe make the whole squad better as well.

‘We’re really relaxed on that front.’
