Reports in Italy suggest Tottenham could hijack Arsenal’s move for Steven N’Zonzi, but fans are eyeing up bigger and better things.
According to Sky Sports, Arsenal have entered talks with Sevilla over a deal for N’Zonzi.
The 29 year-old, who is currently on World Cup duty with France, has been a huge hit in La Liga since he failed to make a major impact in the Premier League with Stoke City.
Arsenal are eyeing the Frenchman to buff up their midfield, but a shock report from Italy has claimed Tottenham could hijack the move.
According to Corriere dello Sport (via Sport Witness), Mauricio Pochettino has requested that Tottenham sign the towering midfielder as a replacement for Mousa Dembele.
Spurs’ popular Belgian beast is expected to leave North London this summer, and they have been linked with a whole host of players who could replace him.
Tanguy Ndombele seems to be the most popular shout amongst fans, and they’re not too impressed by the links to the £27m-rated N’Zonzi.
