European giants join Arsenal in race for £40m talent

Arsenal now have rivals to fend off in their pursuit of a top talent who has hit the ground running this season, if reports are to believed.

The Gunners have been heavily linked with a move for Norwich City midfielder Emi Buendia.

The Argentine has notched seven goals and seven assists this campaign with the Canaries top of the second tier.

They still remain favourites to land the 24-year-old but now Valencia have thrown their name into the mix, according to La Razon.

The La Liga outfit are targeting Harry Winks primarily. But if a move for the Tottenham man doesn’t materialise then Buendia has been earmarked as their back-up option, the source says.

It adds that Norwich are holding out for a £40million fee whomever comes in for him.

Buendia recently revealed that he would favour a move back to the Premier League. He was part of the Canaries squad that was relegated from the top-flight during the 2019/20 season.

“It is the best league in the world, it is the one that makes the difference at all levels,” Buendia said.

“I aspire to the best and work every day to get back to it, either in my team or through a transfer. Returning to the Premier in the short term is a dream.”

Buendia came on as a second half substitute in Norwich’s 2-0 FA Cup win over Coventry City on Saturday.
