ARSENAL are reportedly close to signing Sevilla star Ever Banega.
Arsenal boss Unai Emery already looks to be working on his January transfer business with the window soon to open and midfielder Banega is on his radar.
A move for the 30-year-old was mooted last summer when Emery took the reins but the Gunners ended up signing Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi to bolster their midfield ranks instead.
However, it seems Emery is still requesting Banega, who he coached during his time at Sevilla and Valencia.
And according to Argentine journalist Roberto Martinez, Banega is ‘close’ to sealing a switch to north London.
