Emiliano Buendia speaks out on future as Arsenal target January transfer

Arsenal target Emiliano Buendia insists he is only focused on getting Norwich City promoted back to the Premier League.

The Argentine is one of Mikel Arteta’s top targets for the January transfer window as the Gunners boss looks to add more creativity to his midfield.

Buendia impressed for Norwich in the Premier League last season and the 24-year-old has been in impressive form this term with seven goals and seven assists in the Championship.

Arsenal are reportedly willing to offer players as part of their bid for Buendia, with Norwich demanding a £40 million fee for the midfielder.

Reports have also claimed that Buendia would look to push for a move to Arsenal if the Gunners firm up their interest this month.

But Buendia is adamant that his sole focus is on performing for Norwich, who are currently four points clear at the top of the Championship.

Asked if his aim is to return to the Premier League, Buendia said in an interview with Radio Residencias in Argentina: ‘Yes, I always say it.

‘It is the best league in the world, it is the one that makes the difference at all levels.

‘Any team makes life difficult for anyone, it is very complicated. Their organisational level is perfect, the stadiums have a lot of history, the conditions for playing football are ideal, there are no excuses. And the players and the teams are the best.

‘I aspire to the best and work every day to get back to it, either in my team or through a transfer. Returning to the Premier in the short term is a dream.

‘It is true that there was a lot of talk in the summer, after relegation, about the possibility that both I and other teammates could leave the team to continue in the Premier League.

‘However, I always had my head with the club. I belong to Norwich, I have to do things well for my team.

‘Tomorrow we will see, but I never had my head outside the objectives, to work so that my club does well.

‘As this season unfolds, we are doing well and I am very happy to be here. We are in a good position, I am feeling important, I am scoring goals and making assists for my teammates.’
