Mikel Arteta, the Gunners boss, is ‘desperate’ to add creativity to his side and has earmarked Buendia as a potential option.
The 24-year-old is an exciting right-winger, and he is enjoying a fantastic season with the Canaries. Buendia has scored seven goals and provided six assists in the Championship this season, and Arsenal are reportedly keen to secure his services.
Crook claims that Norwich are under no financial pressure to sell the Argentine winger in the January transfer window, having sold Ben Godfrey and Jamal Lewis in the summer.
In case, he wants to move on, the Canaries are expected to demand a fee in the region of £40m for the player. Crook claims that talks have taken place between the London club and the player’s agent already.
Arsenal have other targets as well and are not willing to meet Norwich’s asking price. Rather, the Gunners are considering a player plus cash deal, with young Reiss Nelson could be used as bait.
