Arsenal prepared £ 40m for Buendia

The Argentine playmaker is seen as a key player for Mikel Arteta.

The Argentina midfielder had a great season with Norwich in the Championship. Mikel Arteta asked the club’s management to buy a player.

Norwich is asking for about 40 million pounds for its leader. Arsenal are close to a transfer agreement.

Arsenal has an unexpected competitor in the fight for the footballer. Aston Villa may even interrupt the Londoners’ offer. In Birmingham, Buendia is seen as the successor to Jack Grealish. An Englishman must go up in the summer.
