Arsenal transfer target Emi Buendia reveals 'dream' to play in Premier League as Gunners eye swap move for Norwich star

NORWICH playmaker Emiliano Buendia has stated it is his dream to return to the Premier League amid interest from Arsenal.

The 24-year-old has been heavily linked with a switch to the Emirates in January, with the Gunners said to be willing to offer cash plus either Joe Willock or Reiss Nelson.

Buendia has been a standout player for Daniel Farke's side this term – chipping in with seven goals and six assists in 19 matches.

No other player in Europe has created more chances than the Argentina youth international this season.

The ex-Getafe ace has carved out 62 opportunities for the Championship-topping Canaries.

His form has caught the attention of Mikel Arteta who is believed to be keen on signing him as he looks to add creativity to his team.

But Buendia has insisted he is focused solely on Norwich, though he conceded his aim is to play top-flight football in England.

Asked about his desire to return to the Premier League, he told Radio Residencias via the Metro: "Yes, I always say it.

“It is the best league in the world, it is the one that makes the difference at all levels. Any team makes life difficult for anyone, it is very complicated.

“Their organisational level is perfect, the stadiums have a lot of history, the conditions for playing football are ideal. There are no excuses. And the players and the teams are the best.

“I aspire to the best and work every day to get back to it, either in my team or through a transfer. Returning to the Premier in the short term is a dream.

“It is true that there was a lot of talk in the summer, after relegation, about the possibility that both I and other team-mates could leave the team to continue in the Premier League."

Before adding: "However, I always had my head with the club. I belong to Norwich, I have to do things well for my team.

"Tomorrow we will see, but I never had my head outside the objectives, to work so that my club does well.

“As this season unfolds, we are doing well and I am very happy to be here. We are in a good position, I am feeling important, I am scoring goals and making assists for my team-mates."
