- Canaries are at the forefront of the championship as they envision the immediate return of the Premier League

Arsenal appear to be forced to wait until the summer for a chance to land Norwich star Emiliano Buendia.
Buendia has been a key player in attacking the Canaries this season, currently leading the championship halfway through the season and having been relegated last season, they are in good shape to immediately return to the top division.
The 24-year-old has scored seven goals from 20 championship games and seven assists this season.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is looking for another creative player to step up his attack
Goal, according to Goal, the Canaries’ £ 40million valuation for the Argentines has deterred the Gunners from taking a step this month, although they are likely to be planning a summer dive.
Norwich’s rating reflects that they don’t want to do business in a season where they could return to the riches of the top division.
The report claims that while Buendia is ready to move to the Emirates Stadium, it is willing to accept a stay on Carrow Road until at least the end of the season.
Canarian boss Daniel Farke has also insisted that Buendia stay in the club and call a move to the Emirates senseless this month.

However, manager Daniel Farke insists that in Argentina there is no point in continuing this month
“He’s a real team-mate focused on the training sessions and the final game,” said Farke this week.
‘He is absolutely happy and knows he has a coach and teammates who want him to be successful and love him.
‘Arsenal are one of the best clubs in this country and also in Europe. But there is no point in moving in January. ‘
Arsenal’s negotiating status has been weakened and many clubs know that Mikel Arteta is urgently looking for creative support for the young Emile Smith-Rowe. Mesut Ozil completed a free transfer to Fenerbahce.
