All alternative extensions are available, so if the clients are patient, I'd buy:

This lets you bring up the web site with every popular alternative extension pointing to it.   Then the .com becomes less useful, and in a couple of years the owner may be willing to negotiate.

That is not necessarily true.
If the ***.net (or whatever) becomes popular and attracts a lot of traffic, the .com gains value.
