New Arsenal boss Unai Emery wants to make Sevilla midfielder Stevn N’Zonzi his first signing for the club, according to reports.
Despite having to convince the club’s board to push ahead with a deal for the 29-year-old, it seems as though the club will bow to the Paris Saint-Germain boss’ request.
According to the Mirror on Sunday, head of recruitment Sven Mislintat is ready to sanction the deal after conversations with Emery about the player – whom he signed for Sevilla originally.
N’Zonzi joined Blackburn for £550,000 from Amiens in France in 2009 and moved on to Stoke for £4.4 million in 2012.
Emery then paid £8 million to take him to Sevilla in 2015.
