Banega has been a long-term target for Unai Emery and the Arsenal boss is keen for a reunion with the Sevilla midfielder.

The Argentinian was heavily linked with a move to the Premier League over the summer and it appears that the Gunners are ready to reignite their interest this month.

Arsenal are looking to strengthen in midfield ahead of the departure of Aaron Ramsey.

It has been widely reported that the Welshman has agreed a deal with Juventus and will join the Old Lady at the end of the season.
