Norwich boss responds to Arsenal interest in his player

Arsenal has been linked with a move for Norwich midfielder, Emiliano Buendia in recent weeks, and it seems that landing him is a bit of a long shot.

The Gunners were struggling with creativity a few weeks back, and it made it hard for them to score goals.

This transfer window was an opportunity for them to land some new players, and Buendia was one of the players that they targeted, according to reports.

The Argentinean has been one of the best players at Norwich even when they were in the Premier League last season. He has remained key for them as they look to make a swift return to England’s top flight.

He scored the only goal as they secured a 1-0 win over Barnsley this weekend to continue their push for a Premier League return.

After the game, the Canaries’ manager, Daniel Farke, remained adamant that his team will not be letting the midfielder leave them this month because he is an important part of their plans.

‘Emi is a key player for us, an important member of the group, and he is totally committed to us,’ he said as quoted by Mail Sport.

‘He is our player and will continue to be our player – he is on a long-term contract with the club so we keep him.

‘Everyone knows his qualities – and I don’t expect interest just because he scored a wonder goal today. He has scored a number like this for us and people know what he can do.

‘It was an excellent finish and that is what Emi can do. He instinctively knows when to make a run and then has the quality to finish like that.’

    Sounds like the words of a man trying to up the ante!! No wonder the rumour mill is suggesting 40 for someone who’s valuation is under 20…we can’t be Pepe’d again

      Promotion to PL is worth more than 20 mill to Norwich so why sell him for that. If he is not worth spending the money on then be quiet and leave him where he is. We don’t want to sell him so why get uppity about the price. He is our player and on a long contract.

      TRVL, In all seriousness, I suggest that all Gooners adopt your “Pepe’d” as a word to regularly use whenever we discuss overpaying for ANY player who disappoints or has disappointed.
      He is the perfect example of the financial foolishness of the past several years that continues to hold us back from having proper money to spend. When you so lightly totally waste £72 mill – paid over years to come and not completed yet for ages – it is not surprising that our absent owner is cautious about allowing much needed real cash now. That does no excuse Scrooge Kroenke but it is still, in his head at least, a good enough reason to continue being Scrooge.

    Farke is just trying to market his player. When he sees money he will change his words. More so, Arsenal can’t be Pepe’d again. Hi valuation is in region of 20m

    It was reported he had a £15 million buyout clause.
