Norwich City manager Daniel Farke has issued Arsenal with a hands-off warning after Emi Buendia’s latest matchwining display for the promotion-chasing Canaries.
The Argentine midfielder impressed in the Premier League last season, despite his side’s relegation, and has continued his fine form in the Championship this term, spearheading City’s push for an instant return to the top flight.
Buendia scored the only goal during Saturday’s 1-0 win over in-form Barnsley at Carrow Road with a technically adept volley. The former Getafe player now has seven goals this season and has registered a further six assists.
Mikel Arteta is desperate to add more creativity to his side in the transfer window and is said to have personally recommended the signing of Buendia. But with the player tied to a long-term deal and Norwich four points clear at the top of the Championship, Farke believes his club are in a strong position.
He said: ‘He is our player. He is on a long term contract. He is happy here. I am not worried about speculation.’
