Arsenal Given Green Light To Sign La Liga Star In £35m Deal
Arsenal could sign Steven N’Zonzi this summer after Sevilla made it clear they will have to sell if we meet the midfielders £35m asking price.
The summer transfer window is open and managers are working hard on their transfer targets so we’ll bring you all the latest gossip from around the globe. Today, Arsenal are linked with Steven N’Zonzi…
According to the Mirror, Arsenal could sign Steven N’Zonzi this summer after Sevilla made it clear they will have to sell if we meet the midfielders £35m asking price.
New Gunners boss Unai Emery is keen to strengthen the squad left behind by Arsene Wenger and he appears to want a dominant midfielder in the middle of the park following the exit of Santi Cazorla.
Jack Wilshere’s future is also in serious doubt so Arsenal need to sign at least one central midfielder and the Mirror claim that Emery is eyeing a raid on his former club for N’Zonzi.
Our head coach worked with the French international during his time in Spain and they won the Europa League together before Emery joined Paris Saint-Germain in 2016, and it seems a reunion could be on the cards.
Sevilla’s director of football Joaquin Caparros has now given Arsenal to green light to sign N’Zonzi but only if we meet the full value of his £35m [via the Mirror] release clause.
Caparros is quoted by the Mirror as saying:
“Is that a rumour or is it true?” he posed to Radio Seville . Has Unai Emery called you? Well, as a successful man, Unai Emery knows what line the club keeps.
“If he wants N’Zonzi, he will have to call and put the bid in. And the bid is the clause. If you put that bid in, then there are no more negotiations [over the fee].”
N’Zonzi has experience playing in the Premier League having enjoyed spells at Blackburn and Stoke and at 6ft 5in’s tall, he’d certainly add a physical presence to the Arsenal side if we sign him.

I think N’Zonzi would be an excellent addition to our team but he’s approaching 30 so £35m would be a big investment for a player of his age when there are so many younger midfielders on the market.
