Italian interest in Banega

Valencia have revealed that two Italian clubs are keen on Ever Banega – but Napoli are not one of them.

"There is a lot of interest in Banega," Valencia sporting director Braulio Vazquez told Radio CRC.

"Two Italian clubs have asked us for information on him, but Napoli have not been in touch. An English side have contacted us too.

"However, Valencia don't want to sell him because he is one of the most important midfielders in the world."

The 22-year-old Argentine international was signed by his present Spanish club in 2008 from Boca Juniors.

"A fee of €10m-€15m seems too low for a key player like Banega," Vazquez added when asked how much the youngster is worth.

"You also have to consider that his valuation will only rise after the Copa America. It would be hard to let go of him."
