According to Eurosport reportsNorth London clubs are checking out options like Real Madrid’s Isco and Norwich’s Emi Buendia.
There have been reports in recent weeks. that Norwich would be ready to sell Buendia for just £ 15 million, with the Athletic reports that it could be an exciting option for the Gunners if they are looking to invest in players with Premier League experience.
However, Eurosport assures that the Canary Islands want to retain him. It would take at least £ 25 million to get him away from the club. It remains to be seen if Arsenal are ready to make any formal approach for him.
