Norwich City boss Daniel Farke has told The Mirror that he doesn’t want to respond to speculation linking Emiliano Buendia with Arsenal.

Football.London reported just a matter of days ago that Buendia is one of a number of players on Arsenal’s wish list for January.

Mikel Arteta allegedly admires Buendia, and the Gunners could launch a move for the Argentinian next month.

Arsenal clearly need creativity in the final third, as they have scored just twice in their last six Premier League games.

Buendia’s versatility makes him appealing, as he can play as a number 10 or on either flank, and starred in the Premier League last season.

The 23-year-old racked up 83 key passes last season, with only Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jack Grealish and Kevin De Bruyne creating more chances.

Buendia would surely love a return to the Premier League, especially with a huge club like Arsenal, but boss Farke has played down the speculation.

Farke was asked about the situation on Saturday, and offered ‘no comment’ because he put up with speculation about Buendia throughout the summer window, and believes he will have to answer the same questions throughout January – but that isn’t really ruling out an exit as Arsenal plot a move.

“No comment from our side. I had this for three months,” said Farke. “I will probably have to speak every day in January about these things. So I am not going to add to speculation in this period,” he added.
