Arsenal have reportedly agreed a fee to sign Sevilla midfielder Steven N’Zonzi, according to reports.
N’Zonzi has long been linked with a move to Arsenal but nothing concrete has materialized. Just last week, he was spotted in London, which caused reports to claim he was closing in on a move to Arsenal.
The midfielder quickly came out to dismiss those rumors, insisting he was only in London for family reasons.
However, that hasn’t stopped the Spanish media from linking him with Arsenal.
According to El Gol via Sports Mole, Arsenal are set to sign N’Zonzi for £35.3m.
This could sound surprising because N’Zonzi has a £38m release clause in his contract but the report claims that Arsenal haven’t been made to trigger the clause.
Instead we’ll be made to pay £32.7m with a further £2.6m in bonuses.
Wenger is believed to be looking for midfielder reinforcements and this reports appears to claim the boss has settled for N’Zonzi.
I do have doubts about this report. First it doesn’t have a reputation of being a good source and secondly, it is looking like a story to sell papers.
