Norwich City playmaker Emiliano Buendia has insisted that he is happy at Carrow Road but will have to see what happens with his future following the Canaries’ promotion back to the Premier League.
Buendia has been instrumental in helping to establish the Canaries as the Championship’s most outstanding team this season. He has managed to register an impressive tally of 13 goals and 15 assists in his 35 league appearances. That has been key to helping Daniel Farke’s side bounce back at the first time of asking and could also now help them wrap up the league title.
The attacker’s form has unsurprisingly seen him continue to attract the attentions of other clubs and it has been reported that Arsenal remain interested in him. While Football League World has also reported that Liverpool are also keeping tabs on the playmaker. Further reports have also linked him with a potential move to the likes of Atletico Madrid, Sevilla and Villarreal.

Speaking to the media following Norwich’s promotion, Buendia outlined once again that he will have to see what his future holds in the summer, but he was also keen to stress that he remains happy at Carrow Road and is pleased to have helped the club get back to the Premier League.
He said: “Everyone knows I have a contract here, I am really happy here but everyone has hopes for the future.
“I always say that I am really pleased with this club, it means a lot for me and my life, and also for my family.
“I am really happy and we will see what happens in the future.
“It means a lot, it’s the best league in the world and everybody wants to play in this type of league.
“So for me, in personal terms, it’s amazing to come back again, so hopefully we’ll have a very good season.”
Buendia’s future is going to be something that Norwich need to get sorted out as soon as possible now that they know they will be playing in the Premier League next season. The Canaries will not be wanting to spend the whole of the summer worried about whether they are going to lose the playmaker or not, and they would need time to sign a replacement if he were to leave.
The attacker seems to be calm over his situation and he knows now whatever happens he will be playing in the top-flight again next term. Buendia has been excellent with his attitude and carried on to deliver consistently for the club despite there having been plenty of rumours circulating over his potential future throughout the course of the season.
If Buendia leaves Norwich in the summer there will be few Norwich fans who will begrudge him that. However, from this update, it does seem like he is open to remaining with the club if that is how it turns out to be. Although, it does seem likely that there will be a lot of interest in him from some of Europe’s biggest clubs and it would always be tough him to turn one of those sides down.
