Newly promoted Premier League team Norwich City have been given a reality check on star midfielder Emiliano Buendia by one of their former players Robert Green in a chat with the Daily Mirror. According to the former Norwich City shot stopper, this summer might be the right time for Buendia to leave the Canaries amidst the transfer rumours linking him with a move to Premier League clubs Arsenal and Aston Villa.

Green made over 200 appearances for Norwich City during his playing career and he believes that his former club will find it difficult to keep hold of Buendia who has been the best player in the Championship this season. The Argentine player scored 15 goals and provided 16 assists in the league for the Canaries as they won the English Championship title to secure promotion to the Premier League after just one season in the second tier. Buendia was part of the Norwich City squad that suffered demotion to the Championship last season and he has helped the team back up to the Premier League.

Green stated that Buendia has added an edge to his game and that he’s now a better player. His quality has not gone unnoticed in the Premier League with Arsenal keen on the player if they can’t sign Real Madrid loaneeMartin Odegaard for the new season.

Odegaard joined the Gunners from Real Madrid on a short-term loan in January and the Norwegian international is set to stay and fight for his place in the Madrid starting XI now that Zidane has left the club. Odegaard hardly had a look in with Zidane as Real Madrid manager. With Odegaard now determined to stay at Real Madrid, his spot could be taken by Buendia though the Gunners will have to pay around £40m including add-ons to sign him.
