West Ham United and Arsenal target Steven N’Zonzi was earlier this week spotted at Gatwick Airport, London, sparking rumours he was set for a return to the Premier League after the New Year.
After only 2-and-a-half seasons in Spain however, N’Zonzi now looks set to make the switch back to England after telling his current club he wishes to leave in January.
N’Zonzi, who turned 29 last Friday, allegedly fell out with Sevilla boss Eduardo Berizzo following the 3-3 draw with Liverpool.
The Frenchman left England for Sevilla in 2015 after spells at both Blackburn Rovers and Stoke City and has since earned himself a reputation as one of La Liga’s most dependable midfielders.
Arsenal, Everton and West Ham have all been linked with a move for the France international, who is expected to cost around £35 million.
The Hammers fans seem mightily pleased at the latest updates on the highly rated midfielder, and by the sounds of it would love to see him in a Claret and Blue shirt for the second half of the season …
Steven N'Zonzi is welcome at my football club anytime.
He is a top midfielder, and is exactly the type of player we are missing.
