Posted on July 24, 2018 by David Nugent

According to the Express, Arsenal are attempting to negotiate a fee with Sevilla for France international midfielder Steven Nzonzi. The 29-year-old has a release clause of around £35.7million in his contract.

However, the Gunners are not prepared to meet the clause, but the Andalusians director of football Joaquin Caparros has stated that he will only be sold if Nzonzi’s suitors meet the clause.

Would definitely add to midfield options

Steven Nzonzi would certainly add to the Gunners central midfield options. The former Blackburn star has matured into a fine defensive midfielder during his time in Andalusia.

While the focus of the football world may be elsewhere right now, especially in England, Arsenal have their sights firmly set on making the most of the summer transfer window. To them, it doesn’t really matter whether or not the Three Lions progress into the final of the World Cup tonight, because their biggest priority associated with that team will be whether or not Danny Welbeck will be returning to the Emirates as a fully fit forward ahead of the new season.

Arsenal have apparently opened the talks with Sevilla over the possibility of Steven N’Zonzi moving to North London, Sky Sports have reported as per their own sources.

N’Zonzi began his professional career in the French League 2 with Amiens in 2007. After spending two years there, he moved to England where he played three seasons apiece with Blackburn Rovers and Stoke City. In 2015 he was spotted and taken to Spain by the Sevilla manager at the time – Unai Emery. They worked together for a year before Emery made the switch to Paris Saint-Germain.

While the focus of the football world is on Russia right now for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, there have actually been quite a few interesting developments back home in North London. In fact, one Argentine in particular who is currently taking part in the tournament could be an Arsenal player by the time he flies home. No, guys, get your head out of the clouds – we aren’t referring to Lionel Messi.

It’s been known for a few days now that Arsenal are interested in bringing Steven N’Zonzi to the Emirates, but as reported by The Independent, the latest development in the story could provide the club with a few hiccups. It has been suggested that in order for N’Zonzi to move to North London, Arsenal would need to trigger his release clause. While that may seem like an obvious move for them to make if they’re that interested, his release clause rests at £35 million.

According to Sky Sports, Arsenal are set to name former Sevilla boss Unai Emery as Arsene Wenger’s replacement. In my article yesterday, I wrote that Emery had emerged as an alternative to Mikel Arteta and it seems the Spaniard will now become the Gunners next boss.

Emery was reportedly in London on Monday for talks with club officials for talks over the job. It seems the 46-year-old impressed them with whatever he had to say.

Arteta wanted more control

According to reports, former Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta withdrew from the race on Monday, as the Spaniard wanted more control over incoming transfers, as the club reportedly are only prepared to give the next head coach a budget of around £50million.

North London club Arsenal are said to have agreed a deal to sign Sevilla midfielder Steven N’Zonzi in January.

According to reports coming from the Spanish publication El Gol, Gunners have reached an agreement with La Liga side Sevilla over a £35.3 million transfer which will be made official once the transfer market reopens in January.

The transfer package which will see N’Zonzi return to the Premier League will include £32.7 million for the transfer fee, plus additional £2.6 million in bonuses.

The French defensive midfielder’s future has been the subject of intense speculation over the past couple of months with Sevilla star being linked with the likes of Everton and Juventus.

According to the Metro, Arsenal are interested in signing Sevilla’s defensive midfielder Steven N’Zonzi. The 28-year-old has reportedly travelled to London with speculation rife that he could be returning to the English top-flight in January.

N’Zonzi first appeared in English football under Everton boss Sam Allardyce at Blackburn. Reports suggest that the Toffees may well be interested in signing the midfield enforcer.

Impressed in Sevilla

N’Zonzi impressed during his time in the heart of the Blackburn midfield and moved on to Stoke City. However, the defensive midfielder enjoyed an underwhelming three years in the Potteries.

Big competition to sign Lucas Perez this summer 1

Posted on August 03, 2017 by David Nugent

Arsenal are looking to offload a number of their players and one of those is supposedly Spanish striker Lucas Perez. The 28-year-old only joined the Gunners from Deportivo La Coruna last summer for a fee of around £17million.

However, he struggled for game time with the club from north London and is now looking to move on in search of regular game time elsewhere.  According to TalkSport, a number of clubs are trailing the forward this summer.

Arsenal forward Lucas Perez is expected to be on his way out this summer, with two clubs from the Spanish La Liga believed to be keen in his signature. The 28-year-old hasn’t even been at the Emirates Stadium for a year but is seeking a move as a result of a lack of playing time in his maiden campaign.

According to the Mirror, former side Deportivo La Coruna and Sevilla are both interested in Perez who asked for an exit after his £17m move didn’t go to plan. He was brought to the club late last summer and ended up scoring an impressive seven goals in 400 minutes of football in all competitions.
