In a recent report, Foot Mercato has mentioned that Leeds United are among several clubs hoping to land Norwich City winger Emiliano Buendia this summer. However, the Whites could face competition in the form of Aston Villa, Crystal Palace, West Ham United, Atlético de Madrid, Sevilla and Villarreal in pursuit of the Argentine playmaker who would command a fee no less than €40m during the summer transfer window (via Foot Mercato).
Buendia’s Incredible Form In The Championship This Season
Buendia was named the EFL Championship’s Player of the season for his brilliant contributions towards Norwich’s title triumph. The 24-year-old has been a joy to watch for the Norfolk outfit over the past ten months. He has banged in 14 goals and secured 17 assists in 40 matches for the Canaries this term across all fronts.
The Argentine sensation deserves all the accolades he has got in recent weeks as he is averaging 2.3 tackles, 1.1 interceptions, 1.3 clearances, 2.9 shots, 3.2 key passes, 1.3 crosses and 1.7 dribbles per game in the Championship this season. Buendia has distributed the ball relatively well after completing 78.8% of his attempted passes in the English second division (stats via whoscored).
The ex-Getafe youngster is in the form of his life, so he could be an asset for any top-flight club including the Whites if they manage to acquire his services when the transfer window reopens later this year.
Will Buendia Be The Right Choice For The Whites?
Buendia is a moderately-paced winger who has terrific balance and dribbling ability to travel with the ball to get to the byline. He has transformed himself into a good crosser of the ball and can pick up his fair share of assists by setting up chances for his teammates in the final third.
Hence, the Argentine wing wizard would be an excellent signing for the Whites as long as he can maintain his good form in the Premier League next season.
At 24, Buendia is entering the prime years of his playing career and would provide some serious competition for Raphinha who has made the right-wing position his own at Elland Road this season. Plus, Marcelo Bielsa could be the ideal person to oversee his development so that he can take his game to another level and succeed in top-flight football.
Buendia will also add plenty of goals and creativity to the Whites attack which makes him a decent choice for Bielsa to consider before the start of the new campaign. However, there are still some question marks over whether he can cope with the physical intensity of Leeds’ brand of football at West Yorkshire and the club must assess that before moving in for him.
