Sevilla are reportedly welcoming bids for their wantaway French international Steve N'Zonzi - but will only sell for a minimum of €30m.

This is according to ibtimes, who believe that Arsenal, West Ham United and Everton are among the clubs interested in the ex-Blackburn Rovers and Stoke City player. N'Zonzi reportedly had an argument with Sevilla boss Eduardo Berizzo after the Spanish side's 3-3 draw with Liverpool in the Champions League, and has not played for the club since.

He is allegedly already in London on holiday, and it seems highly unlikely that he will play another game for Sevilla.

N'Zonzi is a man with plenty of Premier League experience. A strong defensive midfielder, he played 86 games for Blackburn from 2009-2012, but following relegation made a £3m switch to join Stoke. He immediately cemented his place as an important first-team player, although he handed in a transfer request on two separate occasions. 

After three years and 109 appearances at the Potters he joined Sevilla in the summer of 2015, and was part of the team who won the Europa League in that season. But things appear to have turned sour, and it seems only a matter of time before the Frenchman moves on again.

It remains unclear which English side is in best position for N'Zonzi's signature. He played under Everton boss Sam Allardyce at Blackburn, and the Toffees are reportedly keen on a loan move rather than a permanent signing. 


Arsenal, meanwhile, need more strength in the centre of midfield, and Arsene Wenger appears to believe that his fellow Frenchman N'Zonzi could be the answer the the Gunners' problems.
