With Norwich City’s relegation to the Championship having been confirmed, Premier League clubs could soon have their eyes on the Canaries top talent.
Despite the poor season which Daniel Farke’s Canaries have had, some of their players have impressed in what has been their first taste of Premier League football.
The two players who have been linked most heavily with Tottenham are Todd Cantwell (Football Insider) and Max Aarons (The Athletic), while Ben Godfrey has also been mentioned as a possible target for the North Londoners (Express).
However, some Spurs fans have their eye on another member of the Norwich squad; Emiliano Buendia.
The 23-year-old has been impressive since arriving at Carrow Road in the summer of 2018 for a modest £1.5million fee from Getafe.
Some Spurs fans believe that Buendia would bring a lot to the Tottenham side and urged the club to make a move.
We should def go for Buendia. Would add so much creativity to our midfield and he's gonna kill it wherever he goes. He'll be an absolute steal for whoever gets him.

So Norwich are officially down and I've got one thing on my mind: Emiliano Buendia
One of their most valuable assets, with the relegation Norwich will need to sell those assets – Spurs make your move – no more than £15m will be needed.

100%. Sell Lamela or Lucas to free up a spot for him. If Lucas is starting every game, then there's definitely an opportunity to bring in Buendia.
From a non Spurs perspective I'd love to see him as a playmaking 8/CM. Like Cazorla or even Silva. He has the skillset

Spurs should stick a bid in for Buendia. Looks very good and only 23. Him and Hoijberg, get out some of the rot. Would be a good start. #COYS

Van Dijk – Battling Relegation Southampton
Andy Robertson – Relegated with Hull City twice
Xherdan Shaqiri – Relegated with Stoke City

Godfrey, Buendia, Cantrell, Pukki, Wilson, Ake, Brooks. Players from Norwich & Bournemouth who'd improve spurs

Maybe Tottenham should buy Buendia. That seems like a good Willian alternative without giving a 3 year contract to 32 year old Willian.

Spurs Web Opinion
Buendia has been Norwich’s most threatening attacking player on the ball all season. While he certainly is no Allan Saint-Maximin, he is certainly not afraid to take risks when he gets the ball. Rumours indicate that Jose wants to bring in one more wide player this summer and so Buendia could potentially be a bargain option to consider.
