It appears Arsenal could sign Valencia midfielder Ever Banega according to reports in Italy via Metro Uk.
The Arsenal manager who previously worked with the Argentine at Valencia before signing him for Sevilla four years ago, had Banega play a key role in Emery’s Sevilla side which won consecutive Europa League in 2015 and 2016.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Emery has now asked Arsenal’s hierarchy to sign the midfielder, who turns 30 later this month. The report claims that Banega’s agent Marcelo Simonian has been negotiating with Roma over their deal to sign Javier Pastore from Paris Saint-Germain.
Simonian is now due to travel from Rome to London to hold talks with Arsenal over a potential deal for Banega. The midfielder is currently with Argentina’s national team for their World Cup campaign and came on as a second-half substitute in the 1-1 draw with Iceland.
Banega still has two years remaining on his current deal with Sevilla.
