Journalists Confirm Unexpected But Reportedly Imminent Villa Transfer – Norwich & Arsenal Fans Are Not Happy

Image for Journalists Confirm Unexpected But Reportedly Imminent Villa Transfer – Norwich & Arsenal Fans Are Not Happy

With silly season well underway, Aston Villa have been heavily and long linked, with Norwich City talent Emi Buendia and with speculation rife the last week or two, it seems we may have secured our first incoming of the summer.

Buendia impressed when Norwich were last in the top flight, and I certainly wasn’t alone in thinking the Canaries simply wouldn’t part with him this summer after achieving promotion again, purely because of how key he is to their setup, but two journalists are now calling it a ‘done deal’.

The Argentine would be a clever and popular addition to the squad, as not only would he be a good foil for Jack Grealish and reduce the opposition pressure on him, he would also provide creative cover when Jack needs a rest.

£30million rising to potentially £40million is on the steep side, but if he’s someone Dean Smith feels will help take us to the next step, then bring it on.

He would leave Norwich as the Championship Player of the Year for 2020/21 and it was a richly deserved award, with Buendia contributing 15 goals and 16 assists in his 39 matches in the league.

You don’t have to look far on social media to see that Norwich fans aren’t happy – and that’s exactly what we want, as we know how well that turned out for Emi Martinez. Arsenal fans also seem to be in meltdown again as well.

Now we find out if it’s true – but plenty of Villa fans will be thinking about this picture a few days back.

So, to some reaction.

    Living where I do just north of London, this news has put a smile on my face. I’m surrounded by Gunners and Spuds, all of whom enjoy winding me up. They have been getting quieter and quieter, I expect silence from them now. JW-P has been heavily rumoured, his goals against us this season were quite dazzling. I think those two will probably be enough but I wouldn’t be surprised to see another one or two new faces. With Jack showing off a bit in his Three Lions shirt this is a good time to be a Villan.
