Aston Villa, West Ham and Leeds United are chasing Emiliano Buendia
Posted On May 5, 2021
Norwich City midfielder Emiliano Buendia has been in outstanding form in the Championship this season and he has been linked with a move to several Premier League clubs.
According to Footmercato, the 24-year-old Argentine playmaker is believed to be a target for Aston Villa, Crystal Palace, West Ham United and Leeds United.
Villa have been too reliant on Jack Grealish for creativity this season, and signing one like Buendia would add more depth and quality to Dean Smith’s attack.
For West Ham, it is necessary that David Moyes will have a quality attacking midfield if Manuel Lanzini leaves the club this summer. The 28-year-old West Ham midfielder has been linked with an exit in recent months.
Meanwhile, Leeds will have to bring a few quality reinforcements in the attack if they want to qualify for European football next season.
Signing a quality striker as a replacement for Patrick Bamford and a quality playmaker should be a top priority for Marcelo Bielsa.
Buendia will add goals and creativity to Leeds midfield. He has chipped in with 14 goals and 17 assists in the championship so far this season.
The Argentine has not yet reached his peak and he is only getting better with coaching and came on time.
It will be interesting to see if his suitors can agree on a fee with Norwich this summer. The Canary Islands have secured promotion back to the Premier League and they may not be under pressure to sell their key players this summer.
