Arsenal new manager Unai Emery is reportedly planning to sign Sevilla midfielder Steven Nzonzi this summer according to Daily Star. The 46-year-old became the Gunners head coach this summer following the departure of former boss Arsene WengerEmery, who led his former club Paris Saint Germain to a treble in the recently concluded season is looking strengthen his team ahead of the coming season.
And the Spaniard is already set to bring his former player to the Emirates Stadium before the start of a news season as they hope to make a statement in the Europa League next term. However, the Gunners have given the power to sign players to their head of recruitment Sven Mislintat, who was nicknamed “Diamond Eye” whilst at Borussia Dortmund. His impact has however been felt on the Gunners squad with the signing of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan this January. Another former Dortmund star is expected to join the north London side soon, with Sokratis Papastathopoulos reportedly on the brink of arrival. But Emery, as reported by Estadio Deportivo, is still able to influence proceedings, and one area that needs strengthening is defensive midfield.
And the uncertain futures of Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey will give the club more concern, with two key stars looking likely to leave this transfer window. Wilshere’s contract will run out this summer whilst Ramsey’s expires at the end of next season. However, if contract negotiations fail with the Welshman, reports say that he will be sold as to avoid a similar situation to Alexis Sanchez last year.
