It looks like the Sevilla star Steven N’Zonzi is definitely set to leave the Spanish club imminently after he fell out with his head coach Eduardo Berizzo after being subbed off in the 3-3 comeback draw against Liverpool. He has since been forced to train alone while the team has gone on a 3-game winning run, with little chance of Berizzo ever bringing him back into the Sevilla starting XI.
The latest reports are saying that the French midfielder has refused to train and has instead flown to London to discuss his future, but with who could only be a guess, but the fact is that Granit Xhaka has not been winning any plaudits this season and Arsenal could still desperately do with a strong defensive midfielder to play alongside Aaron Ramsey.
The 6’3″ enforcer has improved so much since leaving Stoke for La Liga that he has even broken into the French national side, so Wenger would have been studying his form intently. N’Zonzi would definitely introduce some steel into the Arsenal midfield and it is worth remembering that his first ever red card in the Premier League came from a full-bloodied challenge on Laurent Koscielny while he was at Blackburn, and he would have cheered up Arsenal fans the following year when he intentionally elbowed Ryan Shawcross in the face which earned him a 4-match ban.
The 28 year-old is fully experienced in England and would take no time at all to settle back here so he could immediately take a place in the Gunners first team
Who thinks he would be a great improvement on Xhaka?
