Arsenal remain frontrunners to sign Steven Nzonzi, with his former Sevilla boss Unai Emery now in charge of the Gunners.
Emery has gone about strengthening the Arsenal defence this summer and is unlikely to change his attacking options.
But the departure of Jack Wilshere to West Ham means there is a new midfield spot vacant and Emery may move for Nzonzi to fill it.
Barcelona have also emerged as admirers of the player but Arsenal are very much in the driving seat to secure his signature.
