Arsenal are set to battle Serie A side Inter for the signature of Sevilla midfielder Ever Banega once the transfer window opens in January.
With the futures of both Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey looking increasingly uncertain at the club, Unai Emery is apparently looking to add some creativity to his squad should either depart.
As a result, the Daily Star are reporting that the Gunners’ boss will make an £18m bid for Banega at the turn of the year, believing the Argentine can provide both ingenuity and experience in the centre of midfield.
Emery already has experience working with Banega when he was manager at Sevilla, with the pair winning the Europa League together in both the 2014/15 and 2015/16 seasons, before the midfielder left for Inter and Emery went to take charge of Paris Saint-Germain.
Despite only spending one season with the Nerazzurri before rejoining Sevilla in 2017, the Serie A side are reportedly set to rival Arsenal
