According to numerous news reports, Edu and Arteta have made Emiliano Buendia of Norwich a key transfer target this January. Sky Sports are saying that Norwich are aware of this interest and have given him a £25 million price tag.
Sounds simple enough for a club like Arsenal, however reports suggest that we are not alone in our quest to land the Argentine. We are likely to face competition from Atletico and Valencia, whilst Premier League rivals Leeds and Aston Villa are also said to be interested.
Arteta will hope that him, and potentially Lyon’s Aouar, will be the solution to our creativity issues. He was one of the most creative players in the league last season and has continued this form in the championship with 6 goals and 6 assists from 16 appearances so far.
He would also be providing some needed versatility; he can play in a midfield 3 or out wide on the right.
