Arsenal desperate to sign Sevilla midfielder Ever Banega during the winter. New manager Unai Emery wants to improve the midfield after terrible performances in Premier League starting matches. Gunners lost two games against Man City and Chelsea and it became clear that the Spanish coach has to strengthen the centre to achieve the result.
Unai signed Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi in this summer but they are too young and don’t have enough experience to play in Premier League. So new high-class midfielder is necessary and ever Banega is the best option in this situation. Argentina international joined the Spanish club from Inter in 2017 with a €8m deal as he didn’t establish himself in Italian club and returned in La Liga. Last season Ever played 47 games, scored 6 goals and made 5 assists in all competition.
He also named in Argentina squad for the World Cup and helped his team to reach the playoffs, but after 4-3 losing against France they kicked out from the tournament. The 30-year-old is contracted with the club until 2020 and his release clause is around €20m. Spanish manager has a good relationship with the footballer as they worked together in Valencia and also won Europa League in Sevilla two times in 2015 and 2016.
