Aston Villa presents tough competition for Arsenal in their bid for Championship star

Aston Villa is set to compete with Arsenal for the signature of Norwich’s Emi Buendia.

The Argentinean is the best player in the Championship this season and has helped the Canaries to earn an immediate return to England’s top flight.

Arsenal targeted him when they were relegated from the Premier League last season and in the winter transfer window.

However, they signed Martin Odegaard on loan from Real Madrid instead.

Buendia remained at Norwich and helped them get promoted back to the EPL.

He now has even more suitors and Sky Sports reports that Arsenal and Villa are leading the race for his signature.

Dean Smith’s side has been spending a lot of cash in recent transfer windows and will present serious competition to the Gunners.

The Villans are looking to build on their fine season in this campaign and see Buendia as one player who can help them achieve their aims.

Norwich will want to keep their best players to avoid going down again as in the 2019/2020 season, however, an offer in the region of £35m to £40m will be too much for them to turn down for a player they signed for just £1m.

    The good Lord created Emi Buendía so that he could perfectly fit into the swashbuckling Villa team.

    You would have to pity, somewhat, any defence that, next season, would have to cope against the attacking diamond of Tammy (up front), Ollie (to the left), Emi (to the right) and Jack (bursting through the the centre, Inter playing with those three).

    Buy Senor Buendía, even at a premium – and then enjoy the fireworks!

    Buendia is better than any of our current midfielders.
    He scores
    He assist
    He tackle better
    He dribbles better
    He passes better
    He knows the EPL and needs little adaptation.
    He is the best championship player 2021 season.

    What else do you want?

    We should have signed him in January at the time he was valued around 15-20m.Now is is around 40m.

    But typical of Arsenal we will wait until he is 100m then we will say we nearly signed him.Jack Greenish is a typical example.

    Bissuoma,Buendia, Aarrons and a backup left back and we are good to go.
    Sign them fast before the big boys notice.
