Arsenal transfer claim

Arsenal did not view Emi Buendia as a summer transfer priority, it has been claimed.

The Gunners were interested in signing the 24-year-old forward but he has now completed a move to Aston Villa.

Buendia has joined Villa from Norwich City for a club record fee of £33million, putting pen to paper on a five-year contract.
