‘Yes, Yes, Yes’ ‘Only Needed If We Don’t Keep Lingard’ Fans React To West Ham’s Interest In 40M Rated Arsenal Target

‘Yes, Yes, Yes’ ‘Only Needed If We Don’t Keep Lingard’ Fans React To West Ham’s Interest In 40M Rated Arsenal Target

West Ham are weighing up a potential summer swoop for Norwich City playmaker Emiliano Buendia, according to reports in England.

The Argentine is being lined up as a potential alternative for Jesse Lingard if the Hammers are not able to sign the Manchester United loanee on a permanent basis.

Buendia would appear to be a great option, considering he has scored 14 goals and contributed 17 assists in 40 appearances this season, but there are a couple of complications.



Arsenal are reportedly in the mix to sign the 24-year-old, while Norwich may demand as much as £40m for the player. The midfielder’s price tag, combined with the competition for his signature, have led many fans on Twitter to treat the transfer story with some scepticism:

West Ham were first linked with Buendia in March last year so there is no doubt that he has been tracked for a long time, but the cost of the transfer would almost certainly rule David Moyes’ side out of the running unless the Irons can raise funds through player sales.
