Sevilla midfielder Ever Banega has emerged as Arsenal’s top transfer target after capturing Lichtenstein’s signature.
Banega was part of the Sevilla team that were led by Emery to three consecutive Europa League glory before the manager left for Paris St-German in 2016.
They both share cordial relationship and that could play a great part in Emery’s desire to lure the Spaniard to the North London club this summer.
According to renowned journalist Colin Miller, Marcelo Simonian- who is the player’s agent- is set to fly to the Emirates Stadium tonight to discuss with the club’s hierarchy to know if his client would accept their offer.
Miller, who works with football Espana, claims that Banega is seen as the best man to replace Jack Wilshere and Emery is willing to reunite with the 29-year-old before the start of the upcoming season.
Though Banega is in the late 20’s, he is one player Emery could trust to give him a performance that will ‘wow’ him.
As for Emery, Banega is a player who loves to play the game with all of his heart and soul. The Spaniard praise the Argentine midfielder as someone who is ready to learn and equally play for the team’s success.
Banega is currently with Argentina in Russia as they prepare to face Croatia in a must-win encounter if they must top their group after the second round of matches.
The midfielder is being linked with a move to Premier League as Everton are also keen on his signature but according to Miller, the Gunners are leading the race to capture the impressive central midfielder.
