Arsenal fans wax lyrical about Banega following Argentina victory

On Monday, Estadio Deportivo reported that Arsenal manager Unai Emery has made contact with Sevilla midfielder Ever Banega regarding a possible move.

Emery has previously worked with the 29-year-old, who is believed to have concerns about moving abroad.

Banega, who re-joined Sevilla for a second spell from Inter Milan in 2017, made 48 appearances in all competitions, scoring five goals and creating six assists.

The Spanish publication states that the midfielder could end up being available for £17.5m due to a clause in his contract.

It is unclear whether Arsenal will pursue a deal, but some fans are certainly keen on the idea after witnessing his performance for Argentina at the World Cup on Tuesday.

Banega played a pivotal role in his nation’s 2-1 victory over Nigeria, which sent them into the knockout rounds of the tournament.

While inside his own half, the midfielder chipped the ball over the top to find Lionel Messi, who scored Argentina’s first of the evening.

Banega’s passing on the night set him apart from his teammates, and Arsenal fans certainly noticed.
