Sevilla midfielder in line for January move to Arsenal

Seville midfielder Steven Nzonzi could be in line for a January move to Arsenal, amidst reports, which have been denied, that he met representatives of the club in London over the weekend.

He is available because his relationship with his current manager Eduardo Berizzo is said to have broken down completely, after Nzonzi stormed off the pitch at half-time during Seville’s recent draw with Liverpool in the Champions League.

Now apparently he has been asked to find a new club, and Arsenal, who are keen to strengthen their defensive midfield options, may fit the bill, especially given that Nzonzi has previous Premier League experience, having played 86 games for Blackburn Rovers, and then 109 times for Stoke City before his move to Spain.

Nzonzi has two international caps for France, having just made his debut last month in matches against Germany and Wales, and will be desperate to secure first-team football so as to remain firmly in French manager Didier Deschamp’s thoughts with the World Cup coming up next year.
