Arsenal are looking to make a bid for Sevilla playmaker Ever Banega according to reports from Spain. The Argentine ace has been under the radar of the Gunners for some months and was linked to the club in the summer.
Banega is currently in his native Argentina on holiday as part of the Spanish winter break. However Spanish tabloid La Sexta claims that Banega’s agent is in London to discuss terms with Arsenal.
The midfielder is expected to cost a fee of around £18million due to the release clause in his current contract. Argentine reporter Roberto Martinez has also voiced his belief that a deal is close to fruition between both parties.
“Ever Banega, close to leaving Sevilla to go to Arsenal by express request of Unai Emery, the coach who always extracted the best of him as a player,” he revealed on social media Twitter.
Arsenal strengthened their midfield during the summer, bringing in Matteo Guendouzi and Lucas Torreira. The latter, in particular, has been in sensational form since his move from Sampdoria. However, the impending departure of Welsh ace Aaron Ramsey has seen the club looking for replacements.
One person happy with the possibility of the Welshman at Juventus is World Cup winner Andrea Pirlo. The Juventus legend revealed to Sky Sports Italia that Ramsey would be an excellent transfer for the Italian giants.
“Ramsey is a great purchase,” “Juventus are preparing another excellent deal. “He is a strong player and could do very well.”
Banega’s current contract runs out until 2020 and this transfer looks increasingly likely to happen in January.
