Arsenal ‘definitely’ have offer tabled for player the club ‘really want’

Arsenal are claimed to have ‘definitely’ made an offer to sign Emi Buendia from Norwich City this summer, but still trail Aston Villa at present.

The Gunners have been linked with the Canaries midfielder for over a year now, and Emi finally looks like his time has come to leave his current club.

Buendia was key in helping Norwich to secure a swift return to the Premier League, with 32 goal contributions from his 39 Championship appearances this season, and his arrival at any club this summer will be an exciting one.

Villa are claimed to be leading the chase despite an offer having come in from Arsenal however, but the next 48 hours are expected to be key in helping him decide where his future will lie.

Shortly after the above, the Arsenal correspondent added that his sources confirm that the club ‘definitely’ has made an offer for his signature.

The Argentine could well be set to fill the hole left by Martin Odegaard, who left to return to Real Madrid at the end of his loan spell, and may well be set for a key role in Spain under new manager Carlo Ancelotti.

Would a deal for Buendia end our pursuit of the Norwegian?

    I prefer Buendia to Ödegaard.

    Buendia has 3 consistently good seasons in England. He’s one of the most creative players in England in the past 3 years. He’s also much cheaper than Ödegaard.

    And he mainly has played RW but cuts a lot inside like a CAM.

    Buying Buendia wouldn’t hamper ESR that much as they can both play in their positions. Ödegaard would force ESR on to the wing.

    Our wingers are Saka, Martinelli and Pepe. Nelson will go out on loan and I dont even bother counting Willian in. So ESR would remain our only CAM but Buendia could comfortably play there too.

    He’s going to Villa. Edu and Arteta missed the boat. What a bunch of losers. Can’t even buy a medium price player. Thank you Kroenke for your lies!

    1. ozziegunner says:

      Sean, the pressure is now on for them to come up with an appropriate alternative. However I was never overboard on Emi Buendia, given the in house footballers Arsenal have. Should these muppets miss out in getting Yves Bissouma, a player Arsenal definitely needs to partner Thomas Partey in midfield, I will be really pissed off!

  3. Sean Williams says:

    KROENKE OUT!!!!

    1. ozziegunner says:

      Sean, the muppets Kroenke employs are the major problem. I hope my faith in Richard Garlick is not misplaced.

  4. SueP says:

    Just heard the same news
    Hopefully Arteta and Edu have something up their sleeves then

  5. Havyn says:

    Feel sad
    He’s better than Odegaard but no-nothing Arteta and Edu thinks Odegaard is better

    Mediocrity is the word for Arsenal now, we are falling and falling

  6. AFCam says:

    normally i look for positives nut cant find any here. So much for being backed in the transfer market!. Maybe they meant the board wont veto anyone garlick, edu and arteta want as long as we sell everyone cheap first then try and lowball everyone for players. Thats the way to get back challenging again . Shop in the pound shop and even then haggle at the till. This should have been an easy one , fantastic player , fantastic stats , TOP TARGET, just pay the 40m days ago , job done.If we cant afford that for a TOP target , we wont br buying many to win the league with. The procedd has collapsed , if this is true

  7. Fed says:

    A joke of a club won’t spend money to buy any decent players. Just goes to show how far arsenal are behind the top clubs in the premier league. At best arsenal mid table thanks to the arsenal board and fn Yanks owners

  8. Declan says:

    Were we in for him even at only the £30 million plus add ons being quoted? Perhaps we were , perhaps we weren’t, perhaps we will never know.

  9. Yash Bisht says:

    Very frustrated. Hopefully it’s not a done deal between Villa and Buendia.

  10. MrLucky says:

    Good news. Not the level of players we need. Go all out for someone like Grealish or Sancho. Time for the board to really show they mean business.

    Get Grealish/Sancho, Locatelli, a replacement for Bellerin and a back-up for Tierney. That’s all we need

    1. david budden says:

      Players like that wont go anywhere near Arsenal,no plan,no investment,no class,no chance.Villa,Leeds,Leicester Everton will keep progressing and investing,and will push out Arsenal,Liverpool.Change long overdue.

      1. MrLucky says:

        People said the same about Partey..

        But hey, if you rather wanna be negative, be my guest

        1. ozziegunner says:

          MrLucky, Arsenal’s major target must be Yves Bissouma to partner Thomas Partey in midfield.

    2. Silentstan says:

      You’re in cloud cuckoo land

  11. Kev82 says:

    We can’t compete with Aston villa 😂😂 the club is on its knees!

    1. SueP says:

      It doesn’t look good
      😔

  12. Matthew says:

    I really hope they can go all out&get a better player than buendia because if they don’t,it will really be the end of Arsenal as a big club

    1. Websurfer says:

      Arsenal are like a sinking ship at the moment. “Mayday”, “mayday”. We need someone in the front of this club, who can save this club from going down. Someone who loves Arsenal, and wants to do the very best for Arsenal.

  13. mahmud bashir says:

    villa in for emi our transfers policy not good why?

  14. Websurfer says:

    Arsenal instead tracking £13m-rated Anderlecht midfielder Albert Sambi Lokonga as cheaper alternative. Typically Arsenal ALWAYS trying to get players on the cheap and often ending loosing players, who really could help Arsenal. Then Arsenal turn to cheaper alternatives.
    So no Zaha, no Buendia. ….

  15. Sean Williams says:

    Cheapskates. No idea whatsoever.

  16. JW says:

    So, Arsenal really want this guy.

    Do they Really, Really, Really want him???

    Not enough to stop Aston Villa gazumping them. Yes that is correct – Aston Villa.

    If we need any more evidence of how far Arsenal have fallen, one needs to look no further than this Transfer!!!!

  17. AFCam says:

    any talk of Grealish is plain daft. We cant afford Buendis so we cant afford Grealish at twice the price. Anyway , he is a lifelong Villan and doesnt want to move despite many options. He is like le Tiss on that
