Plenty of Arsenal fans have been reacting to the latest transfer links, and they all agree Steven N’Zonzi would be a beastly addition to their midfield.
According to Sky Sports, Arsenal are in talks with Sevilla over a summer swoop for N’Zonzi, who has been a huge hit in Spain since leaving the Premier League.
The former Stoke midfielder is currently on World Cup duty with France, and would add a lot of steel and muscle to the Gunners’ midfield.
Unai Emery has already added Stephan Lichtsteiner, Bernd Leno and Sokratis Papastathopoulos, with Lucas Torreira heavily rumoured to be joining the early business.
The Gunners are on the hunt for some tenacity and strength to buff up their midfield, and signing both N’Zonzi and Torreira would go a long way to achieving that.
Valued at £27m by Transfermarkt, N’Zonzi struggled at Stoke in his first stint in England, but won nearly four aerial duels per game last season, and would take some of the pressure off Emery’s defence.
Fans are impressed by the links, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
Torreira, Nzonzi, Xhaka, El Neny, Ramsey so solid depth. Torreira and Nzonzi holding with Ramsey/Ozil in front would be strong option.

I’d rather get Nzonzi over Torreira

An astute signing. Also, would probably be the end of Elneny at the club.

If there’s any truth to this and indeed we’re getting Torreira, it only implies we’re going to see the best of Aaron Ramsey cos he’ll most likely be given a free role in the midfield and we know what a free and fit Ramsey is like ????

I’d happily have him at arsenal but not for the speculated €40m! He’s experienced, great for squad depth and he is very consistent.
