Leeds United have been quoted £25 million from Norwich City for midfielder Emiliano Buendia, reports Daily Mail.
The Spaniard is set to head into the Championship with Norwich City, but Leeds could hand him a Premier League lifeline this summer with a staggering £25 million bid.
News broke this weekend that Norwich had quoted Leeds for that price, and the fee has shocked and deterred a lot of Leeds fans online from the potential move.
Can you name these 40 EFL mascots? Have a go now!
The 23-year-old has just completed his second season at the club. He helped them to promotion from the Championship in 2019 with eight goals and 12 assists across the season.
Last season in the Premier League though, Buendia managed just the one goal in 36 appearances, with seven assists for the league’s bottom-club.
Plenty of Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to make their feelings known about the price-tag, and here’s what a few of them had to say:
25m for Emiliano Buendía seems a bit steep to me when you consider he inly scored one and assisted 4 in the Prem last season. Thoughts? #lufc

He's only worth around 8 million, 10 million tops and that's pushing it🤔

Not a position that needs strengthening imo, that type of money could be spent better elsewhere

Bielsa knows best is how I look at everything…
I'm happy to let him choose whatever he sees👍

Buendia is a decent player but £25m is way over the odds. #lufc
