The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have been enjoying reading the rumours today that Unai Emery could be set to reunite with Ever Banega at Arsenal. The Argentine midfielder won two Europa League’s under Emery at Sevilla and could now work under him again at The Emirates according to Estadio Deportivo.
A clause in Banega’s Sevilla contract could see him move from Sevilla to Arsenal for a fee of just £18 million and the fans are loving the fact that they’re being linked with a player who has the pedigree of the Argentine. At the age of 29, Banega’s experience would be very useful at the club considering they have a number of young midfielder’s such as Reiss Nelson and Ainsley Maitland-Niles.
Banega would be a key signing for Emery and considering the Spanish gaffer has little in the way of transfer funds to splash this summer, securing the services of Banega for a fee of less than £20 million would be a huge bargain for the club. Emery reportedly wants to bring in players who can fit into his 4-2-3-1 formation with three attacking midfielder’s behind the striker and Banega fits that system having played it with Emery previously at Sevilla.

Ever Banega to Arsenal would be fantastic

Ever Banega at Arsenal would be amazing what a dream that would be him and Ozil in the same team behind Lacazette n Aubameyang

I would be very happy if Unai decides to sign Banega, especially as a squad player. El Tanguito is not anymore a top class midfielder but can add quality and vision to a midfield now full of muscles and athletic skills.

I’d really like to see us sign Banega

Continuity player. Seems like most managers these days have one.

I think Banega is a contingency if Ramsey doesn’t sign.

People comparing Elneny and Banega as if they played in the same position. Banega is more of a Ramsey type of player.

As you can see, most of the Gunners in the Tavern want Banega at the club and it’s a deal that should be easy enough to complete.
