Romano delivers interesting Arsenal transfer update

Fabrizio Romano has delivered an interesting update on Arsenal’s pursuit of Emi Buendia.

The Argentinean has emerged as a top transfer target for the Gunners ahead of the reopening of the transfer window.

He was in solid form for Norwich City last season as they earned a return to the Premier League.

His fine performances for them earned him the Championship Player of the Season award and he may have played his last game for the Canaries.

Martin Odegaard has returned to Real Madrid after spending the second half of the season at Arsenal.

The Gunners remain interested in signing him on a permanent transfer, however, they will struggle to achieve that.

They have made Buendia an alternative target and Romano says the rumours of his proposed move to the Emirates are true.

The Italian spoke about the deal and confirmed that the Gunners want to sign him and they have already opened talks with him over a potential summer transfer.

Romano said, on his Here We Go Podcast: “Now they have reopened talks with the agent of Buendia, so he’s one of the options for Arsenal. Let’s see what happens in the next weeks.”

If Arsenal lands him, it will likely end their efforts at making a permanent move for Odegaard.

  1. Atangana says:

    Land him asap and then focus on other targets. Stop procrastinating. He’s better than Odegard.
    Sell Lacazette and bring in a top striker not Osdonne Edouard.
    Sign Andre Silva or Patarson Dakah.
    Stop relying on Auba. He didn’t deliver in this campaign and won’t next year either

    1. Henry Chimeri says:

      Sell Auba not Laca. Auba is lazy and doesn’t want contact in his game snd yet soccer is a game of conduct.

  2. Sean says:

    Buendia & Bissouma would be a great start to our summer… slot of money though. Lets hope we can get some decent money from Torreira, Bellerin, Matteo, Elneny, Eddie or Laca/Auba.

    1. Grandad says:

      Where would you play him Sean given that he is basically a right winger?

  3. Makaay wentworth says:

    Great mid Pair.

  4. Mosa says:

    He is better than our midfielders. Sign him

  5. Son says:

    Great news if it’s happening.
    Get it done early enough so we can move on to other targets, seems like liverpool is leading the race for bissouma, we either step up our interest and move faster or we identify another target.

    We should be looking to sell Laca(he’s getting older and will be declining in ability) and replace him with a more dominant striker like Andre Silva or Calver-Lewin

    Then we should focus on our full back options.
    I don’t trust Chambers and Cedric at RB, then we need a cover at LB for Tierney

    Perfect summer for me:
    Beundia- CAM
    Bissouma- CM
    Max Aarons- RB
    Andre Silva- ST
