Farke issues Buendia statement, Arteta confirms Smith-Rowe talks, Ornestein issues Takeover message and Arsenal told right price will get deal done in Arsenal roundup…
Norwich head coach Daniel Farke remains confident the club will get to see Arsenal target Emi Buendia back in the Premier League.
With Mikel Arteta a man that knows he needs to add a bit more creativity to his midfield, there has been alot of rumours over the past few weeks which have suggested that he is lining up a move to try and sign Buendia
Playmaker Buendia has been integral to Norwich’s success this season, leading the division in assists as well as scoring 14 goals, and that ability to find the net is something that is really attracting Arteta to a possible deal.
But even though Farke knows that there will be alot of interest in his best players in the summer window, he is very confident that he will be able to keep hold of his star player in the transfer window: “We are all happy that we have him – and that we have him on a long-term contract,” Farke said.
“He has been unbelievably important for us during the past season and as long as we have him it is a joy to work with him, to have him in the team and for our supporters.
“You have to love his creativity and skills. Hopefully, he can shine also in the future for us.”
Arsenal oracle David Ornstein has opened up on the possible takeover that has been hitting the headlines in recent weeks.
After news broke that Arsenal were set to be one of the 12 teams that would help found the European Super League, Gunners fans have been calling for the owners to sell up and leave the club as soon as possible.
And that has led to reports that Spotify owner Daniel EK is ready to make a substantial offer, worth £2 billion, to try and get the Kroenkes to sell the club and move on, but according to Ornstein, it is unlikely to persuade Kroenke one way or the other.
Ornstein said on The Athletic’s podcast: “What if the protests which are at the highest they’ve ever been among the Arsenal fan base right now, added to by the presence of legends, which has built some real momentum continues to gather momentum? What if those issues in the USA can take even more of their focus away from Arsenal,”
“Now, my hunch, from speaking to a number of people is that events of recent weeks – the protests and the Super League that never was – has actually emboldened or is likely to embolden and strengthen Kroenke’s resolve to keep hold of Arsenal.
“You wouldn’t imagine he would sell now, you might imagine he would have sold a couple of years ago when he took full ownership or he might sell in better times.
“What we’re hearing from Daniel Ek is that he’s here to stay, he’s not going anywhere despite the statement.”
Arsenal fans have help make the club who they are today and the fact that they want the owners out just shows that now is the right time to cash in and make a change, they are not wanted in London.
But can we see a takeover deal happening? Nope is the answer
Mikel Arteta has confirmed that Arsenal are in talks to reward Emile Smith Rowe with a new deal.
Smith-Rowe has been a sensation in that Arsenal shirt this season and has full established himself as a player that is valuable to that first-team and that could help the club get back to the very top of the game.
The youngster is contracted to the Gunners until 2023 and there has been some talk that the club are struggling to open talks and get him signed up to a new contract, which of course, has led to speculation in the media that a few clubs in the Premier League are interested in a possible deal.
However, with the season coming towards a close, Arteta has now opened up and confirmed that Arsenal are in talks to reward Emile Smith Rowe with a new deal: “We are going to have that discussion,” Arteta told Sky Sports.
“I think Emile has earned the right to look at that situation because of the performances that he has produced. He’s very much engaged and wants to continue with us, that’s for sure.”
Smith-Rowe has been brilliant for Arsenal this season in a campaign that has been disappointing for many first-team players, so the news that talks have been opened about a new contract will come as some great news for fans.
He is certainly one player that the fans want to see at the club for the next few years, and is certainly a player that fully deserves the contract that is coming to him.
Norwich head coach Daniel Farke has admitted that the right offer from the likes of Arsenal could see them complete a deal for midfielder Emi Buendia.
Argentine playmaker Buendia has been integral to Norwich’s success this season, leading the division in assists as well as scoring 14 goals, and his performances has led to speculation that Arsenal are very much interested in a transfer deal.
And Farke accepts that should “crazy offers” come in for the likes of Buendia, Aarons, and midfielder Todd Cantwell, then the club might have to consider the bigger picture:”We have to be realistic, we are a self-funding club and will always have to develop our players,” said the German on Sky Sports
“Sometimes you also have to accept if a player has outgrown the club, then there is a solution – we had this in the past with James Maddison, when without the transfer fee it would have been difficult to keep the club going.
“Now, though, we are in a much better position.
“We are not struggling financially anymore and are ourselves playing on the big stage of Premier League level, for that I am not in fear that a player of this category has to leave.”
Farke added: “They are all on long-term contracts, so if a club really wants to buy one of our key players, they have to invest an unbelievable amount of money, and it would be pretty difficult.
“But if there is a club which wants to do this and put some crazy offers out, then it is more like you can also use this money to improve and move on as a club.
“As a head coach, though, my first topic is that I want to work with our best players.”
