The Gunners boss wants to bring Buendia despite reaching an agreement to sign Real Madrid's young prospect, Martin Odegaard.

Martin Odegaard

is very close to signing for

Arsenal

However since the position of Zidane is in doubt, the authorities at

Real Madrid

think that the next manager might like to use the player. Therefore Odegaard could only be a temporary solution for the Gunners. Arteta’s side is desperate for a creative midfielder since they are less than impressive at the final third of the pitch.

Buendia

, Norwich’s player is another midfielder who Arsenal are interested in signing. However, unlike Odegaard, Buendia would not be a temporary solution. The player was shinning in the Championship before their promotion to the Premier League but he couldn’t find his form at the top level and they eventually got relegated.

He is performing well again this season at Championship as he scored 7 goals and assisted 7 times so far this season. Arteta is a big fan of the player and believes that he can get the best out of him. Reports suggest that although the signing of Odegaard is in the final stages, Arteta remains keen to bring

Norwich City

’s player as well.
