Arsenal in talks to sign 29-year-old France midfielder – report

Arsenal are in talks with Sevilla to sign France international Steven N’Zonzi, according to a report in England.
.
Sky Sports is reporting that the Gunners have opened discussions with the former Blackburn Rovers midfielder with regards to a potential switch to the north London club in the summer transfer window.
.
Unai Emery brought N’Zonzi to Sevilla in a £7m deal from Stoke City in 2015 and the pair won the Europa League together following a 3-1 victory over Premier League side Liverpool FC in May 2016.
.
N’Zonzi has also been attracting reported interest from Arsenal’s bitter north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur over the past few days.
.
Sevilla will presumably be hoping that the two London clubs will become embroiled in a bidding war to drive up N’Zonzi’s transfer fee should the La Liga side decide to sell.
.
Arsenal have also been linked with a move to sign Sampdoria midfielder Lucas Torreira and Valencia dynamo Ever Banega to improve their options in the middle of the park.
.
The League Cup runners up have signed veteran Switzerland international Stephan Lichtsteiner in a free transfer from Serie A giants Juventus.
The Gunners have also recruited Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno in a £20m deal.
.
The north London outfit have also brought on Greece international Sokratis Papastathopoulos from Borussia Dortmund earlier this week.
