Arsenal are reportedly in talks to sign France international midfielder Steven N’Zonzi, according to Sky Sports.

The Premier League side, who have signed defenders Stephan Lichtsteiner (Juventus) and Sokratis Papastathopoulos (Borussia Dortmund), as well as goalkeeper Bernd Leno (Bayer Leverkusen), so far this summer transfer window, have been strongly linked with also luring the Sevilla star to the Emirates Stadium ahead of the 2018-19 campaign.

The 29-year-old, who has seven international caps for his country, scored one goal and provided two assists in 44 appearances in all competitions for the La Liga outfit last season.

N’Zonzi, who joined the Spanish side back in July 2015 following his £7m move from Stoke City, has netted eight goals in 136 games overall for Sevilla, winning the 2015-16 UEFA Europa League title.

The report claims The Gunners are in negotiations to sign the ex-Blackburn Rovers and Stoke central midfielder, with new Arsenal boss Unai Emery set to seal a reunion with the Frenchman, following his time in charge of Sevilla.

N’Zonzi is currently on international duty with France at the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals in Russia, and played the final 10 minutes during Friday’s 2-0 quarter-final victory against Uruguay.

He is contracted at Sevilla until June 2020, and valued at £27m.
