Arsenal are reportedly set to sign Ever Banega from Sevilla during the January transfer window.
According to reports in the player’s native Argentina, the Gunners boss has requested a January deal to bring the midfielder to the Premier League.
The Argentine worked with the Gunners boss while managing Spanish League sides Sevilla and Valencia.
Daily Star however reports that the Spaniard has been a big fan of the 30-year-old forward since then and will hope to bring to the Emirates Stadium when the next transfer window opens.
Emery is said to be looking out for a replacement for outgoing star Aaron Ramsey, who contract runs out at the end of this current season.
Meanwhile, The Sun on Sunday reveals that Italian League giants Inter Milan are also interested in landing the player.
Banega once represented the San Siro outfit in the 2016-17 season and a return to re-join the Nerazzurri is on the cards.
According to the publication, the Gunners board is hoping to build a solid midfield with Lucas Torreira, Matteo Guendouzi, Granit Xhaka and Ever Banega at the center of the pitch.
The 30-year-old was heavily linked with a move to Arsenal during the summer, but after a regrettable time away from Sevilla at Inter recently, the player has been reluctant to move away from the Spanish side.
