Emery to get his man! Benaga agent in London to complete £18 million Arsenal deal
Reports have claimed the agent of Ever Banega is in London to discuss a possible January move to Arsenal.
With Gunners boss Unai Emery looking to carry on puuting his own spin on the team and freshen up the squad, he is reportedly keen to add to his squad after acquiring the services of Bernd Leno, Sokratis, Stephen Lichsteiner, Matero Guendouzi and Lucas Torreira during the summer transfer window.
Reports that Aaron Ramsey is beng linked up for a big move to French Champions PSG, recent reports in the mecdia have claimed Emery is eager to bring in the £18 million rated midfielder, to help enhance his chase for Champions League football.
Now Mundo Deportivo say Banega’s agent is currently in London, where he will seek talks with Arsenal, with the Sevilla tempted by the prospect of linking up with his former boss in the Premier League.
The 29-year-old’s pedigree is well-established having played for Boca Juniors, Valencia and Sevilla and his high-energy style could work well for Emery at the Emirates Stadium.
Here is what we think.
Arsenal will surely see some much needed quality arrive in the next few transfer windows, as the club are now moved on from the days of seeing talents arrive rather than ready-made players that could make a difference on the side.
And although Banega is not in his prime, he would add some much needed experience and drive to the Gunners midfield, something Ramsey offers the Spaniard when he is giving the chance to shine in his final few months as a Gunner.
However, Sevilla are no fools and may try to push that asking price up, which would make any deal for the midfielder not worth it.
