Steven-NZonzi

Blackburn Rovers £10m-rated midfielder Steven N’Zonzi is set for a move this summer amid interest from Arsenal and Chelsea, according to the Daily Mail.

Rovers boss Steve Kean confirmed the 23-year-old has demanded to leave Ewood Park this summer following the clubs relegation from the Premier League, but defended his decision to leave the Frenchman back home as the rest of the squad heading to Austria for their pre-season training camp.

Kean also confirmed they will listen to offers for the player and are planning for life without him:

‘Steven has asked for a transfer. I want players who want to be here. That’s the reason why Steven was left at the training ground when we went away.

‘I’ve had a couple of meetings with his dad, who is his agent.

‘He would like to play his football elsewhere, so we’ll be listening to offers if they come.

‘We’ll see how it develops. At the moment we’re not planning to have him in the squad.’

Kean is quoted as saying in the Daily Mail

The Daily Mail suggest that both Arsenal and Chelsea are interested in signing the lanky midfielder, but Blackburn will demand a fee of £10m for his services.

N’Zonzi joined Rovers in 2009 from French outfit Amiens and has gone on to make 97 appearances during his time at the club. He was rewarded with a new five-year contract in the summer of 2010 after winning the player-of-the-year award during his first season with the club but looks set to join Yakubu and Hoilett in leaving Ewood Park this summer.

    I see you carefully left out part of the quote that read “We’ve not had any offers for him so at the moment he’s still a blackburn player”.

    All that has happened here is that he has asked for a move- dont make it more than it is
