Arsenal agree deal to sign Steven N’ZonziDecember 14, 2017
Arsenal have agreed terms over a deal for Sevilla midfielder Steven N’Zonzi, according to reports.
The French midfielder is reported to have stormed out of the stadium after being taken off in his side’s Champions League draw with English club Liverpool last month.
The La Liga side were 3-0 down at the break during the game but a superb comeback saw them fight back and earn a point.
The game itself was much talked about due to Berizzo’s diagnosis of prostate cancer, a problem which the Argentine coach has had successful surgery on this week.
However, N’Zonzi is also another talking point with the former Stoke City man now said to be training alone.
Diario AS report that the 28-year-old has been told not to come near the first team training facility and has now been left out of the squad for recent matches.
N’Zonzi is reportedly unhappy that he was unable to leave the club over the summer after plenty of interest from elsewhere.
And, it is now being reported that a move to Arsenal is on the agenda with the Premier League side set to trigger his release clause of €40m.
Marca cite a report in the Daily Mail that Arsene Wenger is prepared to pay €37m with a further €3m in bonuses.
