AS Roma midfielder Steven N’Zonzi is a transfer target for North London giants Arsenal ahead of this summer’s transfer window according to the publication from Italian media outlet Calciomercato.
It was revealed that Arsenal have made AS Roma sporting director Monchi their top target for the same role though former club winger Marc Overmars has also been linked with the job.
Monchi played a big role in the transfer of N’Zonzi from Spanish La Liga club Sevilla to AS Roma after the player followed Monchi from Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium to the Stadio Olimpico.
Steven N’Zonzi could follow Monchi from AS Roma to Arsenal if the club’s sporting director leaves the Champions League campaigners for the Gunners this summer.
Arsenal manager Steven N’Zonzi is a big fan of the French World Cup winner.
Both parties were part of the Sevilla team that won the Europa League while Monchi was the sporting director at the Andalusian outfit.
Arsenal manager Unai Emery wants to strengthen his midfield in the summer and Steven N’Zonzi could be an experienced option for him.
His former teammate Ever Banega has also been linked with a move to Arsenal though the transfer priority for the Gunners is the addition of a new centre back and a winger.
