‘This is the end of the street for them… make changes, you have to’: Arsenal legend Emmanuel Petit hits out at former club’s transfer policy after they miss out on Emiliano Buendia

  • Emiliano Buendia is on the verge of signing for Aston Villa in a £40m deal 
  • Norwich midfielder is set to complete his move on Tuesday after his medical 
  • It will come as a bitter blow to Arsenal, who had also wanted to sign Buendia

Former Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Petit questioned his old club after they were beaten to the signing of Norwich star Emiliano Buendia by Aston Villa. 

The midfielder is currently on international duty with Argentina and is set to have his medical before completing his move to Villa on Tuesday after a World Cup qualifying game against Colombia.

As Sportsmail reported over the weekend, Villa out-muscled Arsenal in the battle to secure Buendia’s signature after agreeing to pay £33m plus add-ons up to £40m, and a sell-on percentage. 

Petit told talkSPORT: ‘How many times were they wrong in buying players at Arsenal? Defenders, Mustafi, Sokratis, with the same talent. They were adding players on players on players, but they were not difference between them.

‘This is the end of the street for them. Make changes, you have to. It’s been the case for the last couple of years, but what have they done?

‘It’s not a question of money as they have the money.

‘After all the famous Super League drop in the water, after all the frustration in the transfer market and the profile of the players who left, I can understand that they have to be careful by repaying the loan from the bank for the Emirates Stadium.

‘I can understand that, but now it’s over it’s not the same anymore. Don’t tell me it’s because of COVID-19, when you spend £60million on players every single transfer market, you have the money to bring in talent.

‘Can you tell me how you choose your talent? How you choose your profile? What is your target?’
