Relegated Norwich willing to listen to offers for Emi Buendia

Norwich are prepared to cash in on Emiliano Buendia, with the midfielder eyeing a Premier League return.

The PA news agency understands that the Canaries are willing to let the 23-year-old leave Carrow Road, with Buendia believing he has proven himself this season and wanting another chance in the top flight.

He will prioritise staying in England over returning to Spain and has admirers, such as Leeds, who hold a long-standing interest and missed the chance to sign him when he moved to Norfolk in 2018.

The Canaries are ready to listen to sensible offers and would make a huge profit on the £1.3 million they paid to sign Buendia from Getafe.

Norwich would be in a strong bargaining position, with the Argentine having four years left on his contract, and they could look for a fee in the region of £20m.

Attacking midfielder Buendia, who can also play as a winger, impressed in the Premier League this season despite his side’s struggles.

He was one of the top creators in the competition, creating 29 chances in December – the most by a player in a calendar month in Premier League history.

He scored his only goal in June’s 2-1 defeat at Watford as Norwich finished bottom of the Premier League with just 21 points, losing their final 10 games of the campaign.
