Arsenal’s midfield is taking a beautiful shape, but Steven N’Zonzi doesn’t seem to fit. Not unless you realize the limitations that he has.

In case you haven’t been keeping up with my constant ranting and raving about the Arsenal midfield, let me summarize by saying ‘long live Granit Xhaka‘ and ‘who needs Steven N’Zonzi‘?

I say this because most people that want N’Zonzi see him as a replacement for Xhaka. They see N’Zonzi as a battering ram in the center of the pitch where they once hoped Xhaka would be just that. And for that reason, there is a very specific group that sees N’Zonzi as a very specific solution.

I may not like that idea, nor am I all that keen on seeing N’Zonzi come to the Emirates, but if we acquire him understanding what his ceiling is, that makes his value ten times better.
