Arsenal linked with renewed interest in Roma midfielder 0

Posted on April 13, 2019 by David Nugent

According to the Daily Star, Arsenal could renew their interest in Roma central midfielder Steven N’Zonzi this summer. The 30-year-old star has been linked with moves to North London on a number of occasions in recent years.

Unai Emery’s presence at Arsenal has no doubt fanned the flames of the move. The experienced midfielder enjoyed one of the finest seasons of his career under the Spaniard in Andalucia at Sevilla.

Could be available for a cut-price fee

N’Zonzi moved to Roma for a fee of around £25million from Sevilla. The Frenchman has struggled to find his best form in the Italian capital, with reports from Italy suggesting he could leave for a fee of around £19million.

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.

Chelsea to help out Arsenal? 0

According to a recent report, Chelsea could somewhat assist rivals Arsenal in their capture of Steven Nzonzi by allowing Tiemoue Bakayoko to join Spanish club Sevilla. The feud between the Blues and the Gunners is something that has been raging on for years and years now, and it seems odd to think that they may help one another out – even if it isn’t exactly intentional.

The rumours linking Nzonzi to Arsenal have been brewing for weeks and months now, with Unai Emery having experience managing the midfielder. Some felt as if it was a transfer that wasn’t needed given that Arsenal have been sorting out their squad in the middle of the park throughout most of the summer transfer window.

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.

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.

Unsurprisingly we’ve been seeing many high profile names being linked with a move to Arsenal Football Club since Unai Emery’s appointment was confirmed. The Spaniard has been on the ball in more ways than one, showing an efficiency in the transfer market which we haven’t seen in years. We don’t know where it’s leading and we don’t know how many players he’s going to be able to bring in, but one way or another, you can’t help but love this progression if you’re an Arsenal fan.

Arsene Wenger is reportedly very keen to push on with the transfer of Steven N’Zonzi, with the Sevilla midfielder seen as an ideal buy to strengthen the middle of Arsenal’s team considering that has been where many of their problems have arisen this season.

Arsenal were involved in the game of the weekend as they drew 3-3 with Liverpool at the Emirates. The home side went 2-0 down, only to take a 3-2 lead as they staged a stirring comeback, but they were pegged back as Liverpool scored again to make it 3-3.

Impressed in Sevilla
