Emirates Stadium side to battle Man United for La Liga star.
Arsenal and Man United are set to become embroiled in a bidding war in pursuit of Valencia midfielder Ever Banega according to Sports Direct News.
The 25 year old has been in fine form thus far this season, in marked contrast to his club’s up and down displays in La Liga, and the player’s agent claims that a number of sides had already entered negotiations with the Mestalla outfit.
Valencia spent £17m on Banega back in January 2008 and after an uncertain start to his career in Spain the playmaker has cemented his claim as one of the best creative midfielders in the Spanish top tier.
Arsene Wenger may well be keen to strengthen his Gunners squad as they look to end a lengthy silverware drought though the North London club are perhaps not short of creative midfield talents in their squad Banega could offer a fresh dimension to ably link midfield and attack though he is not likely to come cheap.
