Former Norwich City forward and expert Chris Sutton has urged a star from the current team to think twice before leaving Carrow Road.
Canarian midfielder Emi Buendia has been strongly linked to a move to Arsenal in this transfer window.
The attacking threat has scored seven goals and seven assists in the Championship so far this season.
This, combined with his impressive performances during the club’s difficult situation in the Premier League last year, has goaded Mikel Arteta.
However, Sutton believes that Buendia should stay in Norwich at least until the end of the season.
“I think the fact that Norwich has shown great loyalty and faith in him [would convince him to stay], “He said BBC Radio 5 Live (via the subway).
“I think he played for a Spanish second division team. They have done.
“They have turned him into the player and have given him the profile he has now. Highly talented player.
“All I have to say is that it has to see the end of this season. He’s going to Norwich City tonight. “
Sutton He went on to explain what he would do if he were in the situation Buendía finds himself in.
He continued: “If I were in his place, I would carry it out. I’d take Norwich into the Premier League and then say, ‘Thank you very much Norwich City, you’ve been great to me and I’ve been great to you.’
“And then I would go on my way and everyone is happy.”
Buendía is set to make his 100th appearance in Norwich on Saturday when his team host Coventry City in the FA Cup third round.
He has scored 16 goals since his arrival from Getafe in 2018, adding up to an incredible 32 assists.

Norwich boss comments on speculation
Norwich City boss Daniel Farke has addressed the rumors surrounding his fit player.
Buendía scored in the club’s 1-0 loss to Barnsley at the weekend, prompting the Canarias manager to comment on the post-match situation.
“Emi is a key player for us, an important member of the group, and he is totally committed to us,” Farke said.
“He is our player and he will continue to be our player. He has a long-term contract, so we keep it.
“Everyone knows his qualities, I don’t expect interest just because he scored a wonderful goal today. People know what they can do. “
However, if Arsenal If you come to call formally, it may be too great an opportunity for 24-year-old Buendía to turn you down.
