Arsenal want to sign £33m Aston Villa winger

Published

on

Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal have been linked with Aston Villa winger Emiliano Buendia.

According to Football Transfers, Arsenal are interested in signing Emiliano Buendia from Premier League rivals Aston Villa in the summer transfer window.

The report has claimed that Arsenal are looking at Buendia as a potential back-up to England international winger Bukayo Saka.

This is not the first time that the Gunners have been linked with Buendia.

Sky Sports reported in June 2021 that Arsenal wanted to sign the Argentine winger when he was at Norwich City.

The report claimed that the Gunners had an offer of £30 million for the 26-year-old winger turned down.

Buendia eventually moved to Villa from Norwich in the summer of 2021.

Football Transfers have reported that the Villans paid the Canaries an initial transfer fee of £33 million to secure the services of the Argentina international winger.

The report has claimed that Arsenal still admire Buendia and could reignite their interest in him.

Arsenal do not need to sign Emiliano Buendia from Aston Villa
In our opinion, Arsenal do not need to sign Emiliano Buendia from Premier League rivals Aston Villa in the summer transfer window.

We do not think that the Gunners need another winger.

Arsenal have enough attacking players on their books.

Martin Odegaard, Kai Havertz, Emile Smith Rowe, Fabio Vieira, Gabriel Martinez, Leandro Trossard, Bukayo Saka, Nicolas Pepe, Reiss Nelson and Marquinhos are the main attacking options for Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta at the moment.

Gabriel Jesus, Folarin Balogun and Eddie Nketiah are the three strikers for the Gunners.

Where would another attacking player fit in at Arsenal?

Regarding a back-up to Saka at right wing, the Gunners do have Nelson and Marquinhos.

There is also Pepe, but it is likely that he will leave Arsenal in the summer transfer window.

Buendia has made 109 appearances in the Premier League so far in his career.

The 26-year-old Argentina international winger has scored 10 goals and given 15 assists in those games.

Fenerbahce fined over Turkish Super Cup walk-out

Fenerbahce were fined 115,000 euros ($123,175) on Thursday over their Turkish Super Cup protest at the weekend.

Fenerbahce walked off the field in the opening minutes of the fixture against Galatasaray on Sunday as a protest against alleged unfair treatment.

Fenerbahce fielded an Under-19 team for the game against their Istanbul rivals. Galatasaray went ahead after three minutes with Fenerbahce then walking off in a pre-planned protest.

The Turkish Football Federation awarded Galatasaray a 3-0 win and issued Fenerbahce with the six-figure fine.

“It’s time for Turkish football to be reset,” Fenerbahce president Ali Koc had told a press conference before the match.

Fenerbahce are chasing their first Turkish title since 2014 and are two points behind champions Galatasaray with seven rounds to go. Fenerbahce claim they are being picked on.

They had asked for the Super Cup to be postponed ahead of their Europa League quarter-final against Olympiakos on Thursday.

And the club had also demanded that a foreign referee take charge of the Super Cup, citing unfavourable treatment from Turkish referees.

Both demands were denied by the Turkish federation.
