Norwich City are looking like they are set to return to the Premier League this season, as they stutter towards promotion back into the top-flight.
The Canaries are currently sat top of the Championship table and are five points clear of Sheffield United who are 2nd in the table heading towards a crucial stage of the season.
Daniel Farke has been hugely impressive in charge of Norwich this season, and they’ve hardly put a foot wrong in this year’s league campaign.
One player that has been key to the Canaries’ charge for promotion is Emiliano Buendia.
The Argentine signed for Farke’s side on a permanent deal in the summer of 2018, from Spanish side, Getafe.
The 22-year-old has wasted no time at all in adjusting to life in English football, and without him, you have to think that Norwich wouldn’t be in promotion contention.
Buendia’s statistics speak for themselves this season, and he has eight goals and 11 assists to his name in this year’s league campaign.
His presence in the wide position has been sorely missed in recent games, with the midfielder being ruled out through suspension.
Norwich have had to settle for three successive draws in recent weeks, against Reading, Wigan and Sheffield Wednesday, which arguably, isn’t acceptable at this stage of the season.
If they are to win promotion back into the Premier League, then supporters are likely to be set for an exciting summer ahead, with Farke potentially finding more players that have significant potential.
If any of the new arrivals can have as much of an impact as Buendia has had in his debut season in English football, then you have to feel that Norwich are set for a prolonged spell back in the top-flight.
But for now, Daniel Farke will have his side grounded and focused heading into the final stages of this year’s campaign, as they battle to win promotion.
If they can do that, then it’s certainly going to be a potentially eye-opening and potentially season-defining transfer window for the Canaries.Like what the FLW have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
