In the last number of weeks, only one name has made the Arsenal headlines more than Mesut Ozil and that is Emiliano Buendia from Norwich City, The 24-year-old Argentine international has been dubbed to replace the creativity which will be lost by the departure of Ozil.

It’s essentially been confirmed that Ozil will sign for Fenerbahce after his contract is up with Arsenal. It’s been a long time coming, since Ozil has been at the Emirates Stadium for eight years since signing from Real Madrid. After the infamous deadline day signing, nobody truly expected the German international to stay for as long as he has.

But truth be told, Ozil has not been the same since Arsene Wenger left the club some seasons ago. Since then, the club has hired two new managers and neither of them managed to make the most of his exploits.

According to Sky Sports, Arsenal have now finally learned the price they must pay in order to sign Buendia. The report claims that the Canaries will only accept around £50m for his signature, which would appear to be above Arsenal’s budget.

Don’t get me wrong, Buendia is a terrific player and in all honesty, Norwich would have looked much worse last season if it wasn’t for him. However, I feel like £50m is very excessive and if the player wants to leave, it would only be fair for Norwich to lower their asking price, which could be made possible by their clauses being more in their favour.

Arsenal shouldn’t feel obliged to pay this price. There are plenty of options out there in the market and by the way that Emile Smith Rowe has been playing in recent weeks, a case can be made that the Gunners don’t even need to look externally for a replacement, let alone in the division below.

Mesut Ozil would have benefitted this player this season. dark. Next
