With the summer transfer window in full swing, Football Talk will be keeping you up-to-date with all the latest transfer news throughout the summer. Today, Arsenal and Chelsea are linked with Steven N’Zonzi.
Arsenal and Chelsea are among the clubs alerted to the news that Steven N’Zonzi could be set for a summer move, according to the Sun.
The report claims that the French midfielder has failed to link up with the rest of the Blackburn Rovers squad for their pre-season training camp in Austria.
The Daily Mail suggest that manager Steve Kean told the 23-year-old to stay away after talks over the players future broke down last week, with Kean now resigned to losing the £5m-rated midfielder this summer.
N’Zonzi joined Rovers in 2009 from French second division side Amiens SC and has gone on to play 66 times in the Premier League. He was a rare positive during a disappointing 2011/12 season for Blackburn but is now set to end a 3 year stay at Ewood Park following their relegation to the championship.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger and Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo are both on the look-out for a defensive-minded midfielder and with plenty of Premier League experience, N’Zonzi may prove to be an shrewd purchase.
