Spanish journalist Kike Marin who has previously been a reliable source for Arsenal news, claims that Arsenal wants to sign Ever Banega (wasn’t he in Jackass?), having practically signed Lucas Torreira.
The Journalist wrote on his personal Twitter account a few days back that The Gunners have ‘practically closed’ the signing of Lucas Torreira from Sampdoria and he also said that Unai Emery also wants to sign Banega who has a release clause worth €20m with Sevilla.
Después de tener prácticamente cerrado el fichaje del uruguayo Lucas Torreira, parece que @UnaiEmery_ prefiere al argentino Ever Banega. Su cláusula es de €20 millones, menos de lo que ha pagado #Arsenal por el portero alemán Leno, un gran fichaje.? pic.twitter.com/yMpVWcrfnX

A recent report said that the 29-year-old’s agent traveled to London to hold talks with the Arsenal board over a move and Il Corriere del Calcio also said Sevilla are open to any offer that comes for their midfielder.
Arsenal sold the selfish, serial moaner Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United in the winter transfer window and have been lacking the service of a quality winger to replace him, so this could be the reason why the club are interested in Benega but it’s yet to be seen if he will be the man to come fill Sanchez’s selfish size 9s.
