Norwich City winger is reportedly nearing a move to Aston Villa.
Reports in the British media claim that Aston Villa are frontrunners to land Emiliano Buendia.
The 24-year-old has been subject to interest from various Premier League clubs.
The Argentina international joined Norwich from Getafe for a fee in the region of 1.5 million euros in July 2018. His contract expires in the summer of 2024.
The winger banged in 15 goals and provided 17 assists in 41 matches this season across all fronts showcasing just how influential he has been in the final third.
He’s incredibly experienced for a 24-year-old and still has tons of room for growth.
Buendia has represented Argentina at Under-20 level, winning 4 caps and scoring 2 goals.
His impressive performances this season have apparently caught the eye of some of Europe’s big clubs.
Dean Smith wants to sign a new winger and Buendia is one of the names at the top of his wishlist.
The report claims that Villa manager has extensively scouted Buendia and is considering a move for the winger.
Smith will reportedly be handed a huge transfer kitty this summer and the Norwich winger is thought to be among the manager’s priorities.
There is no doubt that Emiliano Buendia will take Aston Villa’s attack to a different level.
According to the report, “Aston Villa believe they have won the race to sign Norwich City star Emiliano Buendia. Football Insider claims Villa have been holding talks with Norwich for the right sided attacker. Previous reports indicated that Norwich were only interested in selling for a fee in the region of £40 million. Now it appears, per the source, that a lower up-front price would help Villa finance such a big money deal. Arsenal had hoped to go for the attacker, but the prospect of more first team football at Villa may persuade Buendia to choose the Birmingham-based club instead.”
