According to Spanish publication Marca, Ever Banega has told Sevilla that he’s happy at the club despite interest from Arsenal.
The Argentina international has been heavily linked with a move to the Emirates in recent weeks with new coach Unai Emery thought to be keen on signing a midfielder with whom he worked at both Sevilla and Valencia.
It’s claimed that, since returning from the World Cup, the 30-year-old has eased the worries of the hierarchy at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan and that it’s unlikely he’ll push for any suitors to trigger his €20 million release clause.
Banega made over 50 appearances for Los Rojiblancos last season having returned from a year on loan with Inter Milan.
Sevilla do still have a headache over the future of Steven N’Zonzi, another midfielder that is said to be on Arsenal’s radar.
Perhaps we’ve switched attention to the Frenchman having got wind of Banega’s decision? There is a catch for the Gunners, he’s €15 million more expensive, which could prove a sticking point.
