A new day brings it with loads of fresh transfer rumours and gossip and as always the clubs most heavily linked are Real Madrid and Barcelona. The two Spanish powerhouses have not spent too much on new signings as yet but that could change in the coming weeks.
On that note, we bring you a round-up of the latest happenings from the transfer market:
Arsenal and Roma to battle for N’Zonzi
Arsenal are back in the race to sign Sevilla midfielder Steven N’Zonzi, if reports in AS are to be believed. However, Roma are also in the reckoning and it will ultimately boil down to which club the player prefers.
Sevilla are holding out for a fee in the region of €40m, which is incidentally N’Zonzi’s release clause, but neither club values him that highly. The Frenchman had a standout season with Sevilla last time around and also played a role in France’s run to the World Cup title recently.
If it were to boil down to an Arsenal vs Roma showdown, N’Zonzi might indeed prefer a move to London where he could be reunited with former coach Unai Emery.
