The Argentine playmaker, who could share the dressing room with Lionel Messi this summer in Copa America, is reportedly looking to leave Carrow Road this summer.

Arsenal and Liverpool have been handed a huge boost in the pursuit of Norwich midfielder Emiliano Buendia.

According to a report, the Argentine youngster has decided to leave Carrow Road in search of the green pastures, with Norwich setting an asking price of 40m pounds.

Buendia has been impressive for the Canaries over the last few years, and he also helped them earn a promotion to the Premier League by winning the Championship in the recently concluded season.

In the process, the 23-year-old racked up a total of 15 goals and 16 assists and was also named the Championship player of the season.

His stellar campaign in the Championship has also caught the attention of Argentine national team manager Lionel Scaloni, who has summoned Buendia for the forthcoming World Cup Qualifiers games against Chile and Colombia.

Arsenal have been tracking the Argentine star for a while as they see him as a top target ahead of the summer revamp.

Mikel Arteta is still uncertain about the future of Martin Odegard; however, he insisted that the discussions would happen in the coming weeks to decide the future of the Real Madrid star.

Liverpool would look to reinforce their midfield as Georginio Wijnaldum has parted ways with them.

Buendia is a top-class talent, and he looks ready to take the next step in his career. It would be a huge miss for Norwich should they let go of the player who was instrumental in their promotion back to the top-flight. However, the Canaries have affixed a price tag worth £40 million, which is reasonable given Buendia’s quality and skills.
