Arsenal have lately shown undoubted interest in the midfielder but could be missing out after club legend advices the 24-year-old to snub North London move
Mikel Arteta is keen to adding Norwich man, Emi Buendia to his center line after seeing the former Getafe man become an important figure in Daniel Farke’s team.
Chris Sutton is a BBC pundit who also did feature for Norwich and Arsenal among others during his playing days.
According to Sutton, Buendia owes Norwich a debt of helping them return to the EPL as leaving the club now won’t be a wise move.
Speaking to BBC, Sutton said; “I have seen the figure £15 million bandied about, that’s insulting. Why would Norwich sell a player who would be such an integral part of getting them promoted?
“I would think the fact that Norwich showed great loyalty and faith in him. I think he was playing in a Spanish second division team. They have made him. They have turned him into the player and given him the profile which he has now. Extremely talented player. All I have to say is that he has to see this season through. He owes it to Norwich City.
“If I was in his shoes, I would see it through. I would get Norwich back to the Premier League then I would say ‘thank you very much, Norwich City, you have been great for me and I have been great for you.’. And then I’d go on way and everybody is happy.”
Despite Buendia being a key player so far for the Championship side, it’s hard to see such opportunities from a club as Arsenal turned down from a Championship side.
