Arsenal do not really need to sign a defensive midfielder when they already have stars like Elneny, Xhaka and Coquelin, who can effectively play in the DM position.
Still, recent, reports have linked Sevilla’s holding midfield star Steven N’Zonzi with Arsenal.
According to Daily Mail, the 29-year-old midfielder is in London and will hold talks with the likes of Arsenal and Everton as he is set to leave the Spanish club in the January transfer window.
Few days back, we covered a report (via El Gol) claiming that the North Londoners seem willing to meet Sevilla’s asking price to sign Steven, who has a release clause of 40 million euros. If that report is to be believed then the Gunners are perhaps favorites to sign him.
Contrary to the report covered by El Gol, Daily Mail claim that N’Zonzi has got a release clause of 32.5million pounds ($43.4million).
This season, the Les Bleus player featured in 16 games for Sevilla before getting kicked out of the team. He has not played a single game since he featured against Liverpool in the Champions League last month.
