Arsenal boss Unai Emery has suggested he’s open to signing French midfielder Steven N’Zonzi from Sevilla before the transfer window shuts in seven days.
The 29-year-old has spent the summer in Russia with the French World Cup squad which managed to lift the trophy following a glorious 4-2 final victory against Croatia. N’Zonzi only started one game in the competition but his stock has only risen since as he’s been linked with several high profile European clubs.
The 6ft 6in giant has spent the last three years of his career in La Liga with Sevilla, having joined the club from Stoke City in the Premier League. He has come a long way since his time in England, transforming into a reliable and commanding midfielder capable of driving his team forward from the middle of the park.
According to Metro Sport, Arsenal has been interested in N’Zonzi all summer and as the beginning of the new season rapidly approaches, Unai Emery may still try to agree on a deal with Sevilla for his services.
“At the moment I’m very happy with the players that are here with us,” said the Gunners boss, as Metro Sport reports.
“We also have others still to come, like Nacho Monreal, Lucas [Torreira] and [Granit] Xhaka, who will start to get minutes on Saturday.
