Aston Villa are battling it out with Arsenal for Norwich City star Emiliano Buendia and are now thought to be readying an official offer, according to The Telegraph.
And, as to be expected, plenty of Aston Villa fans have been sharing their delight at the news on social media.
The 24-year-old could cost up to £40m, which may see him become Villa’s club-record signing. The report suggests that Villa are looking at players who have already played in English football, with a creative midfielder – or a No 10 – a priority at Villa Park this summer.
Would you like to sign Buendia?
Buendia helped Norwich return to the Premier League last season, scoring 15 times and registering 17 assists in 39 Championship appearances.
The Argentine played on the right-wing at Carrow Road during the 2020/21 season but does have experience of turning out on the left and in an attacking midfield role.
