Emi Buendia is on Arsenal’s January wish-list according to reports as the Gunners look to solve their creative crisis.
Arsenal have made an underwhelming start to their Premier League campaign and sit in 14th spot having scored just 10 goals in 10 games.
Gunners boss Mike Arteta is looking to freshen up his creative options after jettisoning Mesut Ozil from his squad and is considering a move for Buendia according to football.london.
Arsenal had targeted Lyon’s Houssem Aouar last summer but were priced out of a move. They have now it seems turned to Buendia, still has three-and-a-half years left on his contract at Carrow Road.
Buendia, who is expected to return to Norwich’s starting line-up on Wednesday evening at Luton after a one-match suspension, was linked with several clubs in the summer but no-one made a formal bid.
