Arsenal have been given the green light to sign Steven N’Zonzi – as long as they meet his £36million release clause.
Gunners boss Unai Emery is looking to strengthen his midfield options ahead of the new Premier League season.
And Sevilla’s N’Zonzi is top of the Spaniard’s wish list, according to reports in Spain.
The La Liga club are prepared to sell the former Blackburn and Stoke player but only at the right price.
Arsenal had been attempting to negotiate having already splashed out on Lucas Torreira, Bernd Leno, Sokratis, Matteo Guendouzi and Stephan Lichtsteiner.
N’Zonzi, 29, was a regular during Emery’s time at Sevilla, scoring four goals in 47 games, and was a member of their Europa League-winning side.
