The 23-year-old defensive midfielder has made an exceptional start to the new La Liga season, impressing pundits and fans alike with his robust performances for Los Che.
However, Banega is inside his final two-years of his existing contract and it is believed that Valencia are yet to open talks over a new deal, which has left the Spanish outfit worried about his future at the club. Valenica are overly concerned that the Argentinean international may demand terms outside their wage structure.
Arsene Wenger, who has also expressed an interest in Banega’s team-mate Dani Parejo, sees the robust midfielder as an ideal solution to Arsenal’s midfield crisis and could be in contact with the La Liga club in the near future.
