Steven N’Zonzi has been linked with Arsenal in the last few days, and following the news that he’s travelled to London, Gunners fans have started to get excited.
Although Aaron Ramsey and Granit Xhaka have begun to form a good partnership in the middle of the park, there are still many who believe the Gunners need a more physical presence if they’re going to be successful.
Now, after a falling out with his current club Sevilla, N’Zonzi appears to be on the market in January, as he hasn’t even made the squad for three games in a row.
He travelled to London this week, reportedly to visit his child, but that hasn’t stopped Arsenal fans from buying into the speculation that it could be to negotiate a transfer to North London.
I’d be happy with this. Was only talking about him at work on Sunday and how I wished we’d got him when he left Blackburn. Would certainly improve us in defensive midfield as he’s better than both Xhaka (who isn’t?) and Coquelin. Swap deal for Xhaka? https://t.co/eFxlvUNIfW

Always thought Nzonzi was better than Kante.

We've been missing a player like N'Zonzi for so long. Praying this is true.

I would love this, but I don’t believe we’d do it. https://t.co/IWb2Q2DEPr

There are still some doubts about whether the rumours are true. But if they are, it seems the Gunners’ supporters would be behind the deal.
With the transfer window fast approaching, we won’t have to wait too long to find out.
