Steven N'Zonzi quells Arsenal transfer talk

Steven N'Zonzi Sevilla midfielder reportedly a target for Leicester City

"Today N'Zonzi is part of the team, but within a month I don't even know if I am going to be [part of it]".

Matters have rather come to a head of late, with N'Zonzi made to train alone after reportedly leaving the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium early following his half-time substitution during the 3-3 Champions League draw with Liverpool on 21 November.

Sevilla conceded three goals in 45 minutes against Liverpool before mounting a remarkable second-half comeback.

The situation has given rise to speculation linking him with Arsenal and Everton, while Juventus are also reported to be tracking the former Blackburn Rovers and Stoke City man.

Steven N'Zonzi on Tuesday denied claims he'd been given permission to hold transfer talks in London, with Everton and Arsenal mentioned, this week. I am now in London, but it has absolutely nothing to do with a transfer, not even to do with football.


Arsenal are another club linked this week, although Bailey's report states that West Ham - and Chelsea, too - "should not be discounted" in the race to sign the 28-year-old, which could also include Paris Saint-Germain.

N'Zonzi was blamed by Berizzo for Sevilla's awful first-half performance against Liverpool last month.

'My future is clearly away from Seville. "The only thing that disappoints me is the manner in which this is ending".

Everton are now leading the race for N'Zonzi, who has a buyout clause of £35.2million, but the club are hopeful of striking a deal closer to £25m for him in the January transfer window. There is always a business side, in football. It had never been bad with a coach before.
