New Arsenal manager Unai Emery has already got the ball rolling with regards to transfers.
The Spaniard, who succeeded Arsene Wenger last month, recruited his first player on Tuesday.
Stephan Lichtsteiner has agreed to join the North London outfit on a free transfer after he was released by Juventus.
The 34-year-old is expected to provide competition for Hector Bellerin at right-back, but there is still some defensive issues they need to address.
The latest report coming out of the rumour mill relates to former Stoke City midfielder Steven N’Zonzi.
Since moving to Sevilla in 2015, the Frenchman has impressed and regularly caught the eye of Premier League clubs.
In three seasons, N’Zonzi has picked up one trophy – the Europa League – in which he won with Emery as manager.
Transfermarkt values the midfielder at around £27m, but according to The Independent, Sevilla’s director of football Joaquin Caparros has told Radio Seville that any suitor will have to meet the player’s £35m release clause.
Arsenal fans have tweeted mixed responses to the club’s apparent pursuit of N’Zonzi, and some would prefer the midfielder to Manchester United’s Marouane Fellaini, who according to The Mirror, is a target for the Gunners.
That’s not too much !! We really need a player like him !

What will be the biggest mistake to sign N’Zonzi for that heavy amount of money instead sign Michel Jean Seri from Nice

Why do we keep signing older players
