Buendia ‘not expecting’ Arsenal transfer offer this month amid £40 million speculation
Emiliano Buendia is not expecting Arsenal to make a late move for him in the January transfer window
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
Buendia has seven goals and six assists so far this season, with Norwich sitting top of the Championship table at the halfway stage, four points clear of closest challengers Swansea City.
But whilst Buendia believes he should be playing in the Premier League, sources close to the player have told Goal that he remains fully focused on Norwich and their promotion push.
The Canaries are believed to value their playmaker at around £40 million ($55m), but remain adamant that they have no interest in doing business at this key stage of the season.
Speaking about Buendia this week, Norwich boss Daniel Farke said: “He is a proper team-mate, concentrated in the training sessions and the last game.
“He is absolutely happy and knows he has a coach and team-mates who want him to be successful and love him.
“Arsenal are one of the best clubs in this country and also Europe. But it makes no sense to have a move in January.”
It would be a massive shock to see Arsenal make a move for Buendia this month, but if they are desperate enough, they may decide to make a cheeky offer for the midfielder. But as we said, it is much more likely that a move in the summer will happen.
COVID 19 is still at large, so there is not alot of transfer deals taking place
