The English side have been linked with the defensive midfielder since the summer, as his previous season saw him dominate the defensive midfield scene in football, but a fallout with Sevilla head coach Eduardo Berizzo sees him all but gone from the Spanish club.
Three days ago, N’Zonzi was in London, which further escalated the rumours about his move to Arsenal. However, he told France Football that he had come to London to see his son who lives there and that rumours of his move to Arsenal were “rubbish”.
The recent rumours have come after fallout between N’Zonzi and Berizzo at half time during the 3-3 draw with Liverpool, when Sevilla were 3-0 down at half time. Also telling France Football, N’Zonzi said the finger was pointed at him for the dreadful performance in the first half. After that, he hasn’t been included for any Sevilla squad since he was taken off at half time against Liverpool.
