Arsenal are on the verge of completing an £18million deal to sign Ever Banega, according to reports from Spain.
The Sevilla midfielder’s agent is believed to be in London ready to thrash out a deal to reunite his client with his former boss Unai Emery.
The Gunners are keen to add experience to their ranks and are in the market for a new midfielder as they prepare for Aaron Ramsey’s exit at the end of the season.
Emery knows Banega, 30, well from his time in Spain, and the midfielder would only set the Gunners back his £18million release clause.
According to transfer guru Tancredi Palmeri, who believes the Gunners are set to stump up a €20m fee for the Argentina international’s signature.
Palmeri wrote on Twitter: “Banega close to Arsenal for 20m €.”
