Arsenal new boss Unai Emery have been heavily linked with a move for Sevilla midfielder Steven N’Zonzi, according to the Sun.

The Gunners have been made aware that they will need to trigger the £35 million ($47m) release clause in N’Zonzi’s contract in order to sign the midfielder.

The former Blackburn and Stoke star has long been linked with a return to England, with Emirates Stadium having been mooted as a possible landing spot for some time.

The Frenchman said: “I am feeling very good at Seville but they are not the biggest club in Europe.

“Playing with high profile players in a big team could be a good progression for me.

“We all know that the transfer window is open but we don’t talk about it that much.

“There is a big tournament coming up and changing teams is not the main worry in the group.”

For now, though, the midfielder’s attention is focused on a World Cup 2018 campaign with France, with Didier Deschamps having selected him in Les Bleus’ ranks ahead of the likes of Paris Saint-Germain star Adrien Rabiot.

N’Zonzi last extended his deal in January 2017, with that agreement set to take him through to the summer of 2020.
