Chelsea are in the driving seat when it comes to any potential deal for Sevilla midfielder Steven N’Zonzi, with Pep Guardiola and Manchester City also in the chase, according to reports from The Mirror.
The former Stoke City man, who has been impressing in his two-year spell in La Liga having left the Potteries, has subbed the offer of a new deal in Seville as he looks to engineer a Premier League return.
The 28-year-old will be keen to show what he’s got when his current side take on Leicester in the Champions League round of 16 second leg at the King Power on Tuesday night, with a 2-1 lead in hand.
The report claims that, with Conte and Guardiola both interested in a move, the Spanish outfit could command a fee of around £25m for their midfield man.
Both mangers, having arrived last summer, will be looking to continue their respective overhauls this summer ahead of another fiercely competitive campaign next season, which will see the Blues return to Champions League football.
