Arsenal held positive talks with the agent of Ever Banega last week as they aim to land the Sevilla star this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Star is reporting that the north London side are keen on a deal to bring the 29-year-old to The Emirates this summer as Unai Emery looks to build a squad capable of winning the Premier League title next season.

The same report quotes Italian journalist Nicolo Schira as saying that the Gunners held talks with the Argentina star’s agent on Friday night and that the discussions were positive.

It is claimed that the Sevilla star’s agent travelled to London to hold talks with the Gunners last week ahead of his proposed move to The Emirates this summer.

According to the same report, Arsenal have already agreed a deal to bring Sampdoria midfielder Lucas Torreira to Arsenal this summer, and Banega could be the Gunners’ next signing.

Meanwhile, Arsenal confirmed their second official signing of the summer last week when they announced a deal to bring goalkeeper Bernd Leno to the club from Bayer Leverkusen.

The north London side will be aiming to at least break back into the top four next season.
