Aston Villa believe they have beaten Arsenal to summer signing

Aston Villa is confident that they have won the race for Emi Buendia even though they are facing competition from Arsenal.

The Argentinean has been on the radar of the Gunners since Norwich played in the Premier League in the 2019/2020 season.

He stayed with them through their spell in the Championship and helped them to get an immediate promotion to the Premier League as the best player in the competition.

Arsenal considers him the best replacement for Martin Odegaard who has returned to Real Madrid.

They are, however, not the only team that wants his signature and their most significant competition is Villa.

The Villans have been spending lots of cash since their return to the Premier League and look set to have another busy summer.

Football Insider says they remain confident that they will beat Arsenal to his signature.

The report says Villa has made significant progress in their pursuit of his signature since the season ended and they feel that he will play for them next season.

Arsenal remains the bigger team and they could still convince him that playing at the Emirates offers him a good chance of playing in Europe.

He scored 15 goals and provided 17 assists in 39 Championship games last season.

    No surprise there…Ever since David Dein left Arsenal they have been incredibly slow when trying to organise a transfer.
    Amazing when you consider their current situation…They obviously need to both move on and bring in a number of players.This needs to be carried out swiftly to ensure that Arteta has the maximum amount of time before the start of next Season to get as many of the players in the New Arsenal Squad acclimatised and ready to begin 21/22 on the front foot and not playing “catch up”.

        Grandad, NAIVETY AND GULLIBILITY IS THE STOCK IN TRADE OF SO MANY FANS. Particularly the younger ones! Just how life is, even though extremely irritating to those of us who are used to using our brains.

    Imagine Aston Villa Competing with Arsenal for player signature, Kroenke had destroy our Club #kronkeout.

    Sad if Arsenal should miss out on Buendia. Aston Villa is desperately looking for a viable replacement for Grealish and that’s why they’re pushing hard.

    Arsenal still haven’t learned from their sluggish and unproductive business style when it comes to new signings: Always waiting till the last minute.

  7. ELLIOT says:

    As usual Arsenal will lose out. Their owners are totally not football oriented.

  8. Cuppers says:

    Come on Arsenal move now and blow Villa out of the water, we are the bigger club despite recent times, get the deal done asap and show we mean business, top player we need, will come back to haunt us.
