The Argentinian midfielder has made demands regarding his potential game time at the Emirates, as well as the style of play by new boss Emery.
A move to the Emirates would be a reunion between player and manager as Emery managed Banega when the new Gunners boss managed back in La Liga at Sevilla.
The 29-year-old made a total of 31 appearances in La Liga last season with six from the bench. The classy midfielder made three assists, as well as scoring three goals whilst boasting an 87% pass completion rate.
The Sevilla man spent a year at Inter Milan, where the midfielder endured an unsuccessful loan spell which has caused Banega to question a move to a new league.
Banega was seen as one of the replacements for the departing Jack Wilshere who issued a statement saying he will be leaving the club which has been his home for the past 17 years.
New Gunners boss Emery has been busy in the transfer market so far. Confirming the signings of out of contract Stephan Lichtsteiner and £22.5m goalkeeper Bernd Leno, as well as reportedly agreeing a deal with Sampdoria for midfielder Lucas Torreria, as the teams president stated the player has 'left' the club.
