Unai Emery Willing to bring in highly rated midfielder At all Costs

Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.

Arsenal want to sign Sevilla midfielder Ever Banega as Aaron Ramsey’s replacement.

Having worked with the Argentina star in Spain, manager Unai Emery believes Banega can play a key role for the Gunners.

Arsenal’s interest in Banega further underlines the club’s relaxation of their stance on signing ageing players.

Players like Banega, 30, would not have been considered by previous manager Arsene Wenger, who preferred to sign younger players who have a resale value.

But recent signings Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Sokratis and Stephan Lichtsteiner are all close to or over 30-years-old.

And the Gunners are now less concerned about signing unproven players who could turn a profit in the future, and instead choosing to focus on stars who can deliver instant success.
